A Hispanic grocery in Opelika was robbed by armed men last night.

At around 10:15 p.m., five men entered the Miscelaino Guate Mex on West End Court.

At least two or three of the suspects were armed with handguns, Opelika police Capt. Allan Elkins said.

One of the men struck the clerk on the head. The suspects took an undisclosed amount of currency and fled.

The man was transported to the East Alabama Medical Center for treatment for minor injuries.

The case remains under investigation.
