Southington police are seeking help in identifying two men who robbed the 7-Eleven convenience store along Queen Street over the weekend before fleeing with a little over $100 in cash.

Sgt. Jeffrey Dobratz said Monday that the two men, shown in the surveillance photos above, entered the 777 Queen St. store around 3:15 a.m. Saturday morning. One man went behind the counter and forced the clerk to open the register, taking cash while the second suspect looked on.

“The suspects obtained more money from a second cash register drawer in the same manner,” Dobratz said. “The suspects never implied or showed a weapon to the store clerk.  The suspects obtained approximately $109 in cash.”

Video surveillance was obtained following the incident, police said. The suspects were described as follows:

The suspect's eyes are dark colored, possibly brown. He was wearing black gloves on his hands and had denim style jeans and brown with a darker toe hiking style shoe. The suspect is about 5'8" tall.

Suspect two was wearing a black ski mask covering the head with only the eyes visible. The suspect has light skin in the eye area and dark colored eyes.
