Suspects brandish handguns, rob store clerk in Manchester

MANCHESTER — Police are searching for two male suspects responsible for a gas station armed robbery early Saturday.

Manchester Police learned that a store clerk was working at the Sunoco Gas Station, located on 330 Tolland Turnpike, around 4:30 a.m. when a pair of male suspects entered the building, demanding cash. The two masked individuals brandished handguns as they ordered the clerk to open the cash register and safe.

The suspects, described as two Hispanic males who kept their faces concealed, robbed the store clerk of an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing the scene.

The clerk, fearing for his life, complied with the suspects’ orders. He escaped the incident without injury. There were no other employees or patrons inside the gas station at that time.

The Manchester Police Department is conducting an investigation into the incident. Anyone with information is urged to contact Manchester Police Department detectives at (860) 645-5510.
