Police responded just after 1 a.m. on Aug. 19 to the Shell gas station, 245 Eddy Road, for a report of an armed robbery.
The store clerk described the robbers as white males, possibly 30 years of age and both between the height of of 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-9 inches tall. The man holding the handgun in his left hand appeared to be heavier than the unarmed assailant, but just as in a similar robbery on Aug. 16, both were wearing ski masks, so no clear facial description could be provided.
In the Aug. 16 robbery at Crosstown Variety on Amory Street, two robbers entered the store and demanded cash. In that robbery both suspects were armed
