ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. (KMSP) -

The St. Louis Park Police Department is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest in two robberies at Metro Transit bus stops this week.

In both cases, a masked man approached victims who were alone, pulled out a handgun and demanded money, cell phones and other personal items.
