Business Connection in Robbery Spree

9-13-04 - Two Hispanic-owned businesses in Texoma fell victim to similar crimes within 24 hours this weekend. Those businesses, Las Brisas in Denison and Rosita’s Bakery in Madill, are owned by the same family.

Las Brisas was hit Sunday night around 9:30 when 2 Hispanic men robbed the waitresses at knifepoint. It happened just one night after a similar attack at Rosita's Bakery. In that case, the waitresses fought off the attackers and the men escaped.

Authorities in Denison and Madill are now working together. In both cases, the robbers drove away in a green Ford Taurus.
