Two men rob at an adult book store at gunpoint and police need your help finding the suspects.

It happened late Friday night. An employee called 911 saying he was robbed at gun point.

Deputies responded to the Pioneer Adult Book Store off Emerson Avenue.

They say two black males went into the store wearing dark colored hoodies. Their faces were covered with bandanas and they were wearing gloves.

Deputies say a larger male pulled out a silver handgun and demanded money.

The suspects emptied the cash register and took the clerk to a back room where deputies say he pushed the clerk down on the floor and ordered him to stay under a table as they fled through the back door.

The suspects are described as two black males.

The first is 5 feet 10 to 6 feet, 280 to 300 pounds. He was wearing a dark hoodie, a bandana covering his face, gloves and grey pants.

The second suspect is the same height, around 180 pounds, and wearing a similar clothing description.

Pictures and surveillance video weren't immediately available, but WTAP is working to get more information.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Wood County Sheriff's Office at 304-424-1834.
