Police are searching for two men who robbed a Fairfield liquor store at gunpoint on Friday.
According to police, two men wearing gloves and face masks walked into Brooklawn Liquor at 752 Brooklawn Avenue on Friday. One pulled out a small silver semi-automatic pistol and pushed the store owner up against a set of shelves.
Police said he pointed the gun at the cashier while the second suspect ran behind the counter and loaded money from the cash register into a brown paper bag.
They left the store and were last seen heading eastbound on Brooklawn Avenue.
Police said both suspects are about 5 feet 5 inches tall. One was wearing a dark gray hooded sweatshirt with a dark-colored baseball cap and the hood pulled over his head. He had on jeans and sneakers.
The second suspect was wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt with a red baseball cap – possibly marked with a Houston Astros logo – and light-colored jeans and sneakers.
