A man wielding a "Star Trek Klingon-type sword" robbed two Colorado Springs convenience stores early this morning, police said. . . .
Witnesses told police that a man wearing a black mask, black jacket and blue jeans entered the stores carrying a sword. The armed robber took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot from both stores, police said.
Officers searched the area but didn't find the robber or the weapon, which was described as a "bat'leth."
