Suffolk police are looking for two men who robbed another man at gunpoint on Thursday night, taking his wallet, his cash and his dinner before fleeing.

The victim was waiting in his car at about 10:15 p.m. for his wife, who was inside the Happy Shopper on E. Washington Street, when he was approached by two black males, one of whom was armed with a shotgun, according to police reports.

The subjects forced the man from his vehicle and demanded that he give them his money, Suffolk spokesperson Debbie George said in a press release on Friday. The victim gave them his wallet and cash, and then one of the subjects noticed a bag of food from a nearby restaurant in the victim’s vehicle. They took the bag of food and fled the scene, George stated.
