Police are on the hunt for two masked men who robbed a store at knifepoint, assaulted a clerk and fled with cigarettes, money and lotto tickets yesterday.


Just after 2:30 a.m., two men walked into a convenience store located in the 1300 block of Northmount Drive N.W with a knife and demanded cash, smokes and lottery tickets.


“One of the men showed the ability to use physical violence and we want to get him off the street. Certainly if anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated,” Duty Inspector Luch Berti said.


The first suspect is described as a white male, 5’4” and wearing dark clothes, a sweatshirt, blue jeans and a baklava over his face.


The second suspect is also described as a white male, 5’8”, wearing a grey “hoodie” style sweater.


  • If anyone has any information, call police at 266-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
