Armed Men Rob Family Video Store In Moon Twp.
MOON TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Two masked men with guns barged into a video store in Moon Township.
Two clerks were alone in the store when the robbers walked through the front door at the Family Video store on Fifth Avenue.
“One went to the left, one went to the right, they cornered each employee, put them down to the floor,” Moon Township Police Chief Leo McCarthy said.
The robbers left no doubt the meant business.
“They held rather large black in color semi-automatic style handguns,” McCarthy said. “They were dressed completely in black from head to toe.”
The robbers also wore gloves, so police don’t have any fingerprints to work with.
The thieves cleared out the register drawer and took off.
The store has added security cameras and policed have beefed up patrols, but it’s been a shocking ordeal for the people who work there.
“It was especially since our store in New Brighton had got robbed several weeks ago,” Rich Rodi, with Family Video, said.
Police say the thieves got away with $500. The suspects are described as thin white men of average or below average height.
Police ask anyone with information to call them.
