A 42-year-old man was robbed of $300 when he was held at gunpoint by two men as he left the A&H Tobacco Mart at 301-B N. George St. Sunday night.

The man told police he came out of the store and both suspects were waiting on the north side of the building for him to walk out.

One of the suspects then presented a long, black revolver and demanded the victim's belongings.

The suspect then stuck his hand into the man's front pocket and took his wallet, which contained $300.

Both suspects then ran away heading north on North George Street, and then turned east onto West Oak Street.

The first, armed suspect is described as a 5-foot-4-inch, 150 pound black man in his 40s with medium-length dreadlocks and an average build. He was wearing a black jacket and black pants.

The second suspect is described as a 5-foot-4-inch, light-skinned black man weighing about 150 pounds in his 20s. He was wearing a black hat, red hoodie, black pants, had short hair and was not armed.
