Two armed men robbed a gas station in Caruthers on Thursday night using a gun and a knife, said Fresno County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Tony Botti.
The two masked men wore hoodies and shielded their faces when they entered the store on Tahoe Avenue just before 9 p.m., said Botti. The man with the knife forced the clerk towards the cash register, where he made him open the till while the other man held a gun.
The two stole an undisclosed amount of money before leaving and heading east . The clerk was not injured.
Both men are described as 5-foot-6-inches and 175 pounds, said Botti.
