Police are looking for two men who robbed an east Charlotte convenience store Monday and then drove away in the store clerk’s vehicle.
The robbery happened early Monday at a 7-Eleven store on Eastway Drive near Central Avenue. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said the two suspects went into the store and grabbed the clerk, forcibly moving him into an office. Then, the suspects took money and merchandise and fled – in the clerk’s car.
The clerk was not hurt, and his vehicle was found later at a nearby apartment complex, police said.
On Tuesday, police released surveillance photos showing the accused robbers in the store.
Police said one suspect is a black man who is about 5-foot-10 with a medium build, sideburns, a goatee and short, curly hair. He wore a black hooded shirt and jeans.
The other suspect was described as a black man who is about 6 feet tall with a medium build. He wore a blue and white zip-up hooded shirt and jeans.
Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
