Two bodegas were robbed Monday night at gunpoint by the same group of thugs in North Philadelphia, police said.

Four men barged into Torres Grocery on Dauphin near Fawn at 9 p.m. At least two of men had guns, according to investigators, and they pistol-whipped the owner and an employee and then robbed them of cash, cell phones and keys.

They also stole from the register. The crooks got away with about $700, while the owner refused medical treatment.

Then, at 9:45 p.m. the thieves robbed a store on Oxford near 22nd. Five people were in the store at the time including two workers and three customers. No one was injured.
