    DANBY — Police are investigating the armed robbery of a convenience store Saturday night.

    According to state police, at approximately 6:30 p.m., a woman entered Nichols’ Store on Main Street and handed a note to the clerk demanding money. The woman displayed a black revolver in the right pocket of her hooded sweatshirt, but never removed the pistol from her pocket, police said.

    The robber made off with what police called “a small amount of cash from the register” and fled the immediate area on foot, although police believe she used a vehicle to leave the area.

    There were no injuries.

    Police described the suspect as a woman, between 5 feet, 2 inches tall and 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighing approximately 100 to 110 pounds. The woman wore a black hooded sweatshirt with a “Peace” sign on the front, blue jeans and a mask made from some sort of fabric.

    Saturday’s incident was the second armed robbery of a convenience store by a woman in the area in four days. Shortly before midnight Wednesday, a woman walked into the Stewart’s shop at 232 Main St. in West Rutland and demanded money.

    Much like Saturday’s robbery, the woman in the West Rutland robbery handed the clerk a note and displayed a handgun, which was tucked into her waistband. Police said the weapon appeared to be a gray revolver.

    Police said the West Rutland robber was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a star pattern on its front and back, blue jeans and a light-colored ski mask.

    Anyone with information about either of these robberies is asked to call the Vermont State Police Rutland Barracks at 773-9101. Tips can also be submitted anonymously online at goo.gl/OZAZks.
