— Durham police asked for the public's help in identifying two men caught on surveillance tape during the armed robbery of a convenience store.

Police said two men entered a Kangaroo store at 2301 Holloway St. around 10 p.m. March 3. One man pulled a gun from his pocket, told the clerk it was a robbery and shot once into the ceiling. They stole cash, cigarettes and jewelry from an employee and a customer.

One man was described as black, in his late teens to early 20s, between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall, with a medium build. He was wearing a toboggan, a flight jacket and sneakers.

The second man was described as black, in his late teens to early 20s, between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 9 inches, with a slight to medium build. He was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, a toboggan, denim pants and sneakers.

Anyone with information about the men's identities or the case should call police Investigator A.M. Cristaldi at 919-560-4281, extension 29123 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.
