Amsterdam Police are searching for two men involved in a Sunday armed robbery of a local convenience store.

At 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 23, Amsterdam Police Department received a report of a robbery at Kings Food and Fuel II at 313 Main St. in the city, according to a Amsterdam Police news release.

Two employees were reportedly working at the time.

The employees told police that two men entered the store, one displaying a small revolver, the other demanding money from the clerk, the release stated.

Employees continued that one male went behind the counter and removed an undetermined amount of money from the register while the second remained on the other side, struck the second employee and struck a customer that was present in the store at the time.

The males fled the store on foot in separate directions, the release stated.

No injuries were sustained by anyone in the store at the time.

Police are describing the suspects as light to medium complexion black males.

One, police say, was medium build, wearing a gray sweatshirt, jeans, and sneakers, with a light-colored bandana covering his face.

The other is being described as a male with a larger build, wearing a red sweatshirt, jeans, and dark-colored footwear, with a dark-colored bandana over his face.

Police say the smaller male was in possession of the revolver, and it is unknown at this time if the second male was armed.

As of Tuesday evening, police were still on the hunt for the two men.

Police ask that anyone with information on the robbery contact the Amsterdam Police Department Detective Bureau at 842-1100.
