Hickory Police are looking for two suspects involved Thursday in an armed robbery.
Two black males walked into the Total Convenience Market on U.S. 70 in Hickory about 8:30 a.m. Thursday, according to Hickory Police Maj. Clyde Deal.
One of the suspects showed a knife and demanded money from the three clerks who were inside the store at the time. Deal didn't know if customers were in the store during the robbery.
Employees emptied the cash register for the suspects, and the men escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash and several packages of cigarettes.
Deal said the suspects left the store on foot and were seen traveling on U.S. 70.
One suspect was described as a black male weighing about 160 pounds. He had a do-rag cover on his head.
The other suspect, who showed the knife during the robbery, was about 6-foot-1-inch tall and weighed between 260 and 280 pounds. He wore a jacket with stripes around the neck area and had short dark hair.
No arrests were made as of Thursday afternoon.
