MAHAN - New details are available from a weekend robbery of a convenience store in Mahan.

The Fayette County Sherrif's Department says two suspects robbed the Sunoco convenience store in Mahan, getting away with an unspecified amount of cash just after 1:00 Saturday morning.  One is a black male with a large growth or discoloration on the right side of his neck.  He is described as 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, in his late 20s or early 30s.  He was armed with a dark colored semi-automatic handgun, concealed in the waistband of his pants.  The second suspect is a white female with wavy blonde hair that is described as "dirty looking."  She is approximately 5 feet tall and 120 pounds, and she has tattoos on both arms as well as needle marks indicating possible drug use.  They fled in a newer model light grey or silver vehicle toward the West Virginia Turnpike, possibly toward Charleston.

"They should call 9-1-1 and report it.  If we can get a tag number or a vehicle description or where they're at.  Absolutely no one should try to confront these individuals, because they are most likely drug users and they are armed," said Captain Jim Sizemore of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department.

If you have any information, you can call Crime Stoppers or contact the Fayette County Sheriff's Department.
