Crescentville convenience store robbed

Two men armed with one shotgun robbed a Crescentville 7-Eleven early Sunday, police said.

The two men came into the store on the 5800 block of Rising Sun Ave. at 2:41 a.m. Sunday, said Officer Christine O’Brien, a police department spokeswoman.

The men demanded money and cigarettes from employees, O’Brien said. They got $150 from a cash register, took several cartons of cigarettes from shelves, and fled the store, she said.

Both men were black. One man was husky and stood 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was wearing a dark jacket with white pinstripes on its shoulder and arms, a gray hoodie and blue and white sneakers. The second robber was slender and stood 5 feet 7 inches tall. He was wearing a gray jacket, blue jeans and black boots. He also wore a white cloth over his mouth, O’Brien said.
