Clayton robbery suspects (Town of Clayton )

The Clayton Police Department is searching for two men who robbed the Speedway gas station located at 8060 US-70 Business West near Powhatan Road on Saturday.

Authorities said that at about 1 a.m the two men walked in through the front door wearing hoods and face masks.

One man was carrying a handgun, possibly a BB gun since the clerk described it has an orange tip.

They asked the cashier to open the cash drawer and then took away with money.

If anyone saw anything in that area around 1 a.m. or recognizes these two men, please call Det. Colonel Kilpatrick at 919-553-4611.

ABC11 has decided to slowly reduce the number of stories on the website that have a comments section. We believe very strongly that our audience should have an opportunity to discuss and debate events in our world, however, we have not been able to moderate the comments as well as we would like. Instead of hosting a platform that could allow a few loud and ugly voices to dominate a conversation, we want to encourage everyone to join us on our social media platforms and speak out there.
