Colorado Springs police arrested one person and are looking for another in two separate armed robberies Friday night.
The first of the two occurred just before 8 p.m. in the 9200 block of N. Union Boulevard. Police said a man between 30 and 40 years old who was carrying a small silver handgun stole an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register after forcing it open with a knife.
Officers describe him as 6-feet tall, thin and wearing a black beanie, white t-shirt, black jacket and blue jeans.
About four hours later, police said Matthew Kemper entered the King Soopers at 3250 Centennial Blvd. with a weapon, "demanding property."
He left the store westbound on Fillmore Street but was stopped by an officer. Kemper was "uncooperative". Police set up a containment around him and, using non-lethal tools and a K9, took him into custody.
