Police in Luzerne County are investigating two Christmas morning crimes, and they think the same man could be responsible for both.

The first was in Plains Township.  Police say a man with some sort of covering over his face tried to rob Dunkin Donuts along Route 315.  It happened just before 4:00 a.m.

Then, ten minutes later, a man tried to rob Turkey Hill on North Pennsylvania Avenue in Wilkes-Barre.

In both cases, the would be bandit left empty handed.  Clerks at both stores provided police with similar descriptions.

Police say the man might have been driving a small black car.

No one was hurt in those attempted Christmas morning robberies.
