WILLMAR - A masked man brandishing a knife robbed the Holiday Station Store on Litchfield Avenue just after midnight Wednesday, fleeing with an accomplice and an undisclosed amount of cash.
Just two weeks ago, the same store was robbed, that time by a gun-wielding masked man.
“It doesn’t, at face value, appear that it’s related to the other robbery,” Police Chief Jim Felt said Wednesday.

According to Felt, one suspect, a 5-foot-11-inch man with a muscular 190-pound build, entered the store. Wearing a blue ski mask, dark gray sweater and gray sweatpants, he threatened the clerk with a knife, demanding he open the till.
Another suspect, a man about 5 feet tall, acted as a lookout, and alerted the first suspect when a car approached. Felt says the second suspect was wearing a gray sweater or hooded sweatshirt.
