Two masked men robbed the Family Dollar on Gateway Drive in Phenix City Monday night.
The suspects entered the store at 1009 Gateway Drive, just off U.S. 431, at 6:52 p.m., said Phenix City Police Capt. Frank Ivey.
“One of them had a small-caliber handgun,” the captain said. “There were several patrons in the business at the time.”
None of the customers were robbed, though the suspects did take an unknown amount of cash from a cashier.
Never miss a local story.
“They instructed the cashier to hurry up once or twice,” Ivey said.
No one was hurt and no shots were fired.
The suspects split up when they left the store on foot, Ivey said. One headed north and the other went behind the store.
Both men were wearing hoodies and ski masks.
