A Greenville Bojangles was the fourth fast food restaurant in Pitt County that was the scene of robbery or attempted robbery in the last six days. Authorities have yet to say if they are connected.
Police are still looking for two men who robbed the Bojangles on South Memorial Drive. Officers say the masked men both had handguns. They say they came into the lobby of the restaurant about 7:45 p.m. and demanded money- then one man jumped the counter and asked the manager to open the safe. The manager didn't get the safe open, but the suspect got away with money from the register and ran toward the Westhaven subdivision. Police say 7 employees were inside at the time, but no one was injured

On Monday night the Bojangles in Farmville off of Highway 264 was robbed at gunpoint at around 9:30... Surveillance photos show all three were wearing masks and were armed.
