Police were called to the scene shortly before one o'clock this morning.
The clerk told officers he had gone outside the store to dump trash when he saw one of two suspects crouching in front of the store. The clerk tried to run away but fell. He told police the man caught him, grabbed him by the collar, pointed a handgun at him and made him walk back to the store where a second suspect was waiting inside.
The clerk was then ordered to open the cash register and put the money in a bag.
One of the men then took the clerk's wallet and made him lay down on the floor before both suspects ran out the door and down the street.
Police say the suspects are both black men aged 25 to 30 and further described as follows:
5'9", 180 pounds, wearing blue bandana, black hoodie, black pants, brown boots
5'11", 200 pounds, wearing black bandana, dark hoodie
