Armed robbers sought in 7-Eleven heist

Sur­veil­lance im­age

Po­lice seek the pub­lic’s help in identi­fy­ing two masked men who robbed a 7-El­ev­en in the Holme Circle area early last Fri­day.

The ban­dits burst in­to the store at 2981 Welsh Road at 4:30 a.m. and an­nounced a rob­bery, po­lice said. One of the crooks poin­ted a hand­gun at a clerk and ordered him to open the cash re­gister. The gun­man then beat the clerk, tied him up and took an un­dis­closed amount of cash from the re­gister as well as ci­gar­ettes. Both ban­dits fled the store and ran north­bound on Welsh Road, po­lice said.

Both rob­bers were de­scribed as white and 20 years old. One is about 5 feet 6 inches tall with a me­di­um build. He wore a gray hooded sweat­shirt, jeans and a mask cov­er­ing his face. The oth­er rob­ber is about 6 feet 1 inch tall with a heavy build. He wore a black hooded sweat­shirt, tan pants and a mask cov­er­ing his face.
