JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Police are looking for two people who robbed a local convenience store early Wednesday morning.

The alleged holdup happened around 2 a.m. at the Kum & Go on South Stadium Boulevard.

An employee said the first suspect walked in and pointed a gun at him, then began yelling at him. When the second suspect walked in, the employee told police he ran out the back of the business.

The suspects then fled from the store, said Corporal Dave McDaniel, public information officer for the Jonesboro Police Department.
