The incident took place around 7:40 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 22, at Brooklawn Discount Liquor at 752 Brooklawn Ave., in Fairfield, said Fairfield Police Lt. Antonio Granata.
After receiving a 911 call, patrol officers, detectives, and a K-9 unit responded to the scene.
According to Granata, the employee said the two men came into the store and demanded money. One of the men held a firearm to the employee's head while the other took money from a cash register and a bracelet from the employee.
A customer in the store also had his wallet stolen by the suspects, Granata said.
The men, who fled with an undetermined amount of cash, are described as being Black males in their 20’s, wearing all black, including black face masks.
During an investigation, a K-9 track led police to nearby Querida Street where the track ended abruptly indicating the suspects may have entered a vehicle.
