Two women were robbed at gunpoint at their vehicles in Palm Desert Friday within five hours of each other but officials have not said whether the cases were related.
In both cases, however, the suspects, Latino and in their 20s, had shaved heads and drove off in black, primer-colored trucks with paper plates.

The second robbery was reported about 9:15 p.m. in the 74000 block of Highway 111, near Portola Road, officials said.
The victim told deputies she had just parked her vehicle but had not yet gotten out when another vehicle pulled up beside hers and she was approached by a gunman demanding her property, according to Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Patrick Carroll.
Investigators determined the robber took a cell phone and a purse, among other items, then got into a black, primer-colored Jeep Cherokee with paper plates reading "Mitsubishi," and tinted back windows.
The suspect in the first robbery also drove a black, primer-colored truck, this one with paper plates reading "Paradise," officials said.
The suspect in the second robbery stands about 5 feet 6 and weighs 170 pounds; he wore a dark, hooded pullover sweatshirt and blue jeans, officials said.
