DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — Durham police investigators are asking for information in reference to an armed robbery that happened at a business in late September.
Around 9 p.m. on Sept. 23, officers responded to a report of an armed robbery at a sweepstakes store in the 1200 block of Avondale Drive.
Two male suspects wearing masks entered the business and pointed guns at the employees, police said. The suspects forced the employees to open the cash drawer safe.
