The incident occurred about 10:45 p.m. at the store in the 6500 block of Hampton Roads Parkway. The clerk called 911 to tell police he was robbed by two black males who entered the store brandishing firearms and demanding money.

The first suspect was described as about 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing approximately 190 to 210 pounds, with a medium build and complexion and short black hair. He was wearing what appeared to be a nylon stocking over his head and face, a dark-colored, long-sleeved shirt with a black-and-white patterned hoodie underneath, dark pants with a flare at the bottom, black and white sneakers, and a white sock or glove on his left hand.

The second suspect was the same height but weighed about 220 to 240 pounds and had a heavy build. He was wearing a dark-colored ski mask over his head and face, a dark-colored short-sleeved shirt that extended to his mid-thighs, a pair of light-colored cargo-style shorts that fell below the knee, a pair of tan high-top hiking boots and white socks. He also wore a glove or sock on his left arm.

The two fled the scene on foot after the incident. The clerk was not injured.
