OAKLAND (KDKA) – Police are looking for two men who held up a local gas station with a semi-automatic gun.

It happened just after 2 a.m. at the Sunoco in Oakland, near Craft Avenue and Boulevard of the Allies.

Initial reports indicate that one of the men was armed with a TEC-9 gun.

The clerk was forced across the store to the register to get the money. Police tell KDKA only one man was armed, but the gun was never fired.

The suspects quickly left the store and headed toward Craft Avenue.

Both men were dressed in all black, wearing ski masks and they are believed to have fled in an older model two-door, white Cadillac.

The first suspect is described as being six-feet tall, 165 pounds and 20- to 25-years-old.

The second suspect is described as five-feet-11-inches tall and 20- to 25-years-old.

Police did pull over a similar car near the scene, but did not find the suspects.

This is the third time this place has been held up in the past month. One time was in December, another last week and then Friday morning.
