ST. JOHN — Two men wearing ski masks are accused of robbing a Family Express at gunpoint and stealing three cash registers early Tuesday, police said.
An attendant told officers the men — who also wore gloves — entered the Parrish Avenue gas station after midnight and brandished a semi-automatic handgun.
Police said the pair then forced the employee into a back room before taking the registers, which contained an undisclosed amount of money, and fleeing in an unknown direction.
The attendant wasn't harmed, officers said. No one else is believed to have been in the store during the alleged robbery.
The masked suspects both are described as black men in their 20s to early 30s, with an average height and build. The attendant told police one of them has a deep voice.
