Henrietta convenience store robbed by men with shotgun


Two men wielding a sawed-off shotgun early Saturday morning robbed a Henrietta convenience store.

The men entered Allsup’s Convenience Store, located at 301 E. Omega St. at about 1:47 a.m. on Sept. 29. Reserve Deputy Cory Brinkley was dispatched at 1:55 a.m. A cashier on duty at the time of the robbery was threatened, but not injured.

The cashier told Brinkley that the men entered the store from the west, one carrying a brown or black bag and the other a shotgun. One of the men placed the bag on the counter and told the cashier, “This is an armed robbery,” and, “Give me all your money.”

During the incident, one of the men pumped the shotgun and told the cashier multiple times to hurry up.

In the report, Allsup’s area manager Amy Hatch stated that the suspects got away with $197.

The two men left the store to the west, at which point the cashier called the sheriff’s office. The cashier said that after he called, he saw a black Chevrolet extended cab pickup drive north on Henrietta Street, which runs along the west side of Allsup’s, and turn west onto Omega Street at a high rate of speed.

Viewed on surveillance video, the man carrying the bag is described as wearing a red hat, black shorts, a purple and black jacket and brown tennis shoes. The second man, carrying the shotgun, is said to have been wearing a light blue cap, grey hooded sweatshirt, black pants with a white stripe down the side and white tennis shoes. The faces of both men were concealed with black bandanas.

The aggravated robbery is under investigation.
