At about 1:20 a.m, two suspects entered the Royal Farm store in the 5800 block of Stevens Forest Road. One displayed a handgun and demanded cash and cigarettes from the 24-year-old male clerk.

The suspects fled with an undetermined amount of cash and were last seen running east from the store. Police used a dog to search for the suspects but were unsuccessful.
