Niagara Falls neighbors are worried after police reported two robberies in as many days. 

The first robbery occurred on 13th street and Niagara Avenue on Wednesday and the second outside of a bar on 22nd street late Thursday night. 

In both robberies a gun was pulled on the victims with one witness of the 22nd street robbery describing "a man with his head wrapped" at the scene. Some neighbors are concerned that this could become a trend for Niagara Falls. 

"(It's) a little scary ... I've got grandchildren so it is a little scary" Kelly Morello, a witness, said.

Both robberies are currently under investigation by the Niagara Falls Police Department. 7 Eyewitness News did reach out to the Niagara Falls Police Department and has yet to hear back.
