Suffolk police are asking for help identifying two suspects involved in the armed robbery Wednesday night of the Quick Stop Citgo station at 1160 Portsmouth Boulevard.

Two black males in their mid-20s entered the business just before closing, at about 11:30 p.m. One of them displayed a handgun, and the men took an undisclosed amount of money from the registers and then fled the scene.

The suspects are both described as being between 5’8” and 5’10” and of medium build with short black hair. They were wearing dark blue or black hoodie jackets with blue jeans. One of the men had a blue bandana covering the lower part of his face, while the other had his hood up, covering his head.
