Two sought after Rochester gas station robbery

ROCHESTER - Police are searching for two men they say robbed the Milton Road Shell gas station at gunpoint Wednesday evening.

Police said two men, one carrying a handgun and the other a shotgun, entered the store about 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, confronted a clerk and demanded money.

"At the time the store was busy with several customers and two store clerks," police said in a release.

The men ran away toward Milton Road heading north after the robbery, police said.

One man is described as white with a heavy build, about 5 feet, 8 inches to 6 feet tall about 18 to 25 years old with blond hair. He was wearing a Patriots hat with a red bandanna over his face and was holding a sawed-off gray camouflaged shotgun.

The other man is described as a thin man, also 5 feet, 8 inches to 6 feet tall wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt and a cloth covering his face. He was wearing a dark-brimmed ball cap and was holding a long-barreled handgun, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 330-7127.
