Two men held up the clerk at a local convenience store Saturday morning, escaping with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The incident took place at approximately 5:48 a.m. Nov. 30, at the Harrington Shore Stop at 16381 S. DuPont Highway, said Delaware State Police spokesman Sgt. Paul Shavack.
Two men came into the store, one of who was armed with an unknown type of handgun, and demanded cash, Shavack said. After the clerk handed over the money, they fled on foot.
The 65-year-old clerk was not injured, he said.
The first suspect was described as a black man standing between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 8 inches in height, of average build, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a dark ski mask. This suspect was carrying the handgun, Shavack said.
The second suspect was described as a black man standing between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, weighing 175 to 200 pounds and wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and black mask over his face.
There was no further description of either man available, Shavack said, and surveillance photos are not available.
