The suspects reportedly announced the robbery upon their entrance, forcing everyone to get down. Highlighting the severity of the situation, they held the store clerk at gunpoint, approaching the counter and demanding the cash in the drawer.

Meanwhile, the remaining two allegedly began to loot the store, grabbing merchandise from the shelves and stuffing it into bags. However, they did not stop at the store’s contents. The perpetrators also allegedly took the cell phones from the bystanders before fleeing the scene.

Description of the Suspects

Despite the chaotic nature of the incident, some details about the thieves have been gleaned. All three were reported to have worn dark clothing and face masks at the time of the robbery. Unfortunately, no further descriptions of the suspects were provided due to the masks obscuring their faces.
