A Peoria business was held up Friday night by two men, one brandishing a pistol, according to Peoria police. The latest holdup occurred at the Discount Tobacco on West Reservoir. No one was hurt in the robbery and police are still looking for the two suspects. This is the third business holdup in Peoria this week. Police say on Monday two people, wearing masks held up McDonald's on NE Adams and two days later, and a few blocks away, the Hardees was hit. Police aren't saying if the three robberies are connected.
