Crescentville convenience store robbed

Start­Frag­ment

Two men armed with one shot­gun robbed a Cres­centville 7-El­ev­en early Sunday, po­lice said.

The two men came in­to the store on the 5800 block of Rising Sun Ave. at 2:41 a.m. Sunday, said Of­ficer Christine O’Bri­en, a po­lice de­part­ment spokes­wo­man.

The men de­man­ded money and ci­gar­ettes from em­ploy­ees, O’Bri­en said. They got $150 from a cash re­gister, took sev­er­al car­tons of ci­gar­ettes from shelves, and fled the store, she said.

Both men were black. One man was husky and stood 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was wear­ing a dark jack­et with white pin­stripes on its shoulder and arms, a gray hood­ie and blue and white sneak­ers. The second rob­ber was slender and stood 5 feet 7 inches tall. He was wear­ing a gray jack­et, blue jeans and black boots. He also wore a white cloth over his mouth, O’Bri­en said.
