Police say they are searching for two robbers who took part in a terrifying robbery at a market in Strawberry Mansion.

According to police, a 56-year-old man was closing the gate to his store located on the 2400 block of North 26th Street when he was approached by the duo.

The first male grabbed the victim and forced him back into the store while pointing a handgun. Seconds later, a second male suspect followed them inside.

There, the suspects took an undisclosed amount of cash from the cash register as well as the victim's residence, then ran away in an unknown direction.
