CHICAGO (WLS) -- Two men robbed two liquor stores blocks and minutes apart Wednesday night, Chicago police said.

Investigators said they happened at 10:50 and 10:59 p.m. in the 3000- and 3500-block of West Fullerton Avenue in Logan Square.

The masked robbers pulled out guns and took money from cash drawers before running off, according to police.

In the second incident, they also took items from the employees.

No one was hurt in either robbery.

A clerk Albany Food and Liquor said their store has been robbed twice in one week. The last robbery was Saturday, when a cashier was pistol-whipped, and cash was stolen from registers around 10:45 p.m.

The owner of the store did not want to talk on a camera, but the owner of a business next door said it's concerning.

"It's very bad for anyone to rob the store. You know, nowadays everyone is suffering. They rob because people don't want to work; it's very bad," said Saroj Patel of Sara Professionals.

No one is in custody, and Area Five detectives are investigating.
