Robberies haven't stopped after police arrested four teens related to at least seven robberies across town.

A lone culprit targeted Diamond Shamrock at 5553 Austin Bluffs Parkway about 9:20 p.m. Tuesday, Colorado Springs police said. The man pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money, police said.

He left with an unknown amount of cash. No injuries were reported.

After a quick spike in robberies earlier this year, with multiple happening in the same night, they've since slowed down.

Aside from a bank robbery on March 8, police have not reported a business being targeted since March 4, according to the public blotter.

Police announced on March 7 they arrested four teens connected to the recent rash of robberies at convenience stores, usually in the early morning hours. The foursome also were accused in the robbery that left a liquor store owner dead.

Dustin Cole Logan, 19, Phinehas Tyree Daniels, 18, and unnamed 13 and 16-year-old juveniles remain in custody.
