Two men in werewolf masks robbed a convenience store on Williamson Road on Sunday night, police say.
Roanoke police spokeswoman Aisha Johnson said officers responded to the One Stop Market in the 4300 block of Williamson Road at 7:40 p.m., when a store employee reported that two men had entered the business and demanded money.
Johnson said one of the men pulled a gun. They obtained an undisclosed amount of money and fled.
Surveillance photos from the store show the men wearing werewolf masks. Johnson said investigators are looking for the men, who are both described as thin black men between 5 feet, 7 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall.
The man with the gun was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a zipper on the front, in addition to a gray werewolf mask. He also wore black jeans and black sneakers. The second suspect, Johnson said, wore a red, white, blue and yellow long-sleeved shirt with a white collar. He was wearing a brown werewolf mask, along with dark blue jeans.
