OSCEOLA, AR (KAIT) -

Osceola police are investigating an armed robbery in which two men walked into a convenience store, one armed with a handgun, and stole several thousands of dollars in cash.

According to an incident report, an employee of In & Out Mart said he was robbed a gun point shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday.

The incident report stated as the employee went to the back of the store to count money, two men barged into the front door. “One black male was wearing all black clothing with a camo face mask and a camo hat and the other black male had what appeared to be white/black camo shirt and a black mask,” the report stated.

The employee reported both men were armed with pistols. He also told police that one suspect forced him to kneel while the other pointed a gun at him. The suspects eventually got away with nearly $11,000.

The incident report also stated that “one of the males is wearing the same clothes and sneakers as the McDonalds robbery.”
