    Bridgeport police are searching for the men who robbed a convenience store at gunpoint Tuesday night.

    According to police, two men on bicycles arrived at the Banvlado Market at 1218 State Street in Bridgeport shortly after 9:30 p.m.

    Surveillance footage shows one of the suspects enter the store, pull out a handgun and point it at the clerk, who backs away and raises his hands. The suspect then jumps onto the counter and gestures at the cash register.

    The employee opens the register, and the first suspect grabs bills and coins and stuffs them into his pockets, the video shows.

    While he's taking the money, the second suspect comes over and demands cigarettes. The clerk hands over three packs and the suspects leave the store, according to surveillance footage.

    Surveillave video shows both suspects to be dark-skinned men wearing black hooded sweatshirts with the hoods pulled over their hands, along with jeans and white sneakers.

    Anyone with information on the robbery is urged to call Bridgeport police Det. M Fiumidinisi at 203-581-5246.
