CONCORD - Police are asking for the public's help to find two men who held up the Shell Gas Station on Loudon Road at gunpoint shortly after midnight Saturday.

Police said two men entered the store with bandanas or shirts duct-taped over their lower faces. One man pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded that she give him the cash drawer, while the other man stood as a lookout  at the door, according to a news release.

The clerk gave the robber the drawer and he then demanded cigarettes. Both men then fled the store on foot easterly towards Loudon Road, police said.

Both men were described as white, in their mid-20s, about 5-foot-10-inches tall and with heavy builds.

The man with the gun wore a dark hooded sweatshirt with white writing, dark pants and white sneakers. He also had a black backpack. The sweatshirt had the number 5 and other writing on the back and an unknown symbol on the front, police said.

The second man wore a dark shirt with light pants, grey sneakers and a dark-colored baseball hat.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Lt. Sean Ford or Sgt. Robert Buelte at 225-8600, or the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100.
