Baton Rouge police searched Sunday for two men who walked into a Cracker Barrel store Saturday night and robbed an employee at gunpoint, stealing money and merchandise.
Cpl. Don Coppola, a police spokesman, said the robbery occurred at about 9 p.m. at the store on 6435 Winbourne Ave.
Coppola said there was at least one employee in the store and he did not know if there were any customers.
Video surveillance footage shows two masked men getting out of a Chevrolet Impala and walk into the store, Coppola said.
The men stole an undisclosed amount of money and merchandise, then fled in the Impala, Coppola said.
One of the robbers is described as a black man in his early to mid 20s, between 120-150 pounds and about 5 feet, 5 inches tall, Coppola said. He wore camouflage pants, a white T-shirt and red athletic shoes.
The second robber is described as a black man between 18-26 years old with light-colored eyes, between 5 feet, 3 inches and 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing between 130-170 pounds, Coppola said. He wore blue jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Baton Rouge Police Department’s Armed Robbery Division at 389-3845 or Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
