— Raleigh police are looking for two men who attempted to rob a Circle K gas station on Millbrook Road just before 5 a.m. Thursday. At least one of the men had a handgun.

Authorities said the men ran out of the store after the clerk resisted and fled east on Millbrook Road. Nothing was taken from the gas station.

The suspects are white, of medium height, and thought to be in their late teens or early 20s, police said. They were last seen wearing black sweatshirts.

Anyone with information should contact the Raleigh Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357.

    Boy Raleigh sure has had a few robberies, shooting and some sex crimes this month. Glad nobody got hurt in this but like others mentioned some of these stories really could have better details included with them

    Who fled east on Millbrook ? The Men, or the Clerk ?

    Sadly I do agree with you Madmaxx, and thats the trouble with media all too often. I don't mind them reporting it's a white person .... in fact there ARE crimes committed by whites, but if WRAL or any news agency is going to do this .... then do it every time. Not just in instances to persuade public opinion. Stereotyping wrong ? You bet it is ...... but be consistent when you report.

    That robbery could have gone terribly wrong and our comments would be "praying for the family".

    You know, I always wanted to be a news journalist but knew my composition skills were not the greatest. Although, after reading so many news stories on here I think I may have done well enough to get a job. It is almost funny to read the stories. After the clerk resisted and fled east. HAH! Instead of the men ran out of the store and fled east after the clerk resisted.

    The clerk fled east. That's good to know.

    most of the other crimes reported on WRAL never mention race or anything about the suspects but yet always asks if anyone has information on the perps to contact police (with little to no info on description) and yet when it is white folks doing the crime, they certainly announce it. I was surprised the heading didn't read "WHITE people committed armed robbery".

    I like that word "attempted". With more people carring these days we should see that word more often.
