CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) -

Late Wednesday night, two men entered the S&S Express Gas Station on Crockett loop and robbed the clerk at gunpoint.

Now, the Crockett Police Department is seeking the public's help in finding the two suspects in the robbery.

According to a press release, two black men entered the S&S Express gas station located in the 1500 block of East Loop 304 at about 11 p.m. and robbed the clerk at gunpoint. The first suspect through the door brandished a rifle and immediately pointed it at the clerk, and the second suspect was carrying a blue and white Adidas backpack that possibly had the number 15 and a name stitched on the front of it.

Once they were inside the store, the two suspects went behind the counter and ordered the clerk to open the register.

"After gathering an undisclosed amount of money, both suspects left the store and fled on foot heading south out of the store parking lot."

The suspects were both dressed in dark clothing and had their faces covered with only their eyes showing. The first suspect is believed to have been wearing blue Nike tennis shoes.

The two men are described as black men possibly between the ages of 18 and 25 years old, between 5-foot-8 and 6-foot-3, and weighing 160 to 180 pounds.

Anyone with any information is urged to call the Crockett Police Department at (936) 544-2021 or Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS.
