    Two men robbed a convenience store in Bridgeport at gunpoint on Sunday and police are looking for the public's help in identifying suspects caught on the security cameras, police said.

    Police said that the men robbed Mike's Grocery Store at 375 Capitol Avenue at gunpoint just before 10 p.m., minutes before the store closed.

    Video surveillance shows two hooded men enter a store with guns in hand. One of the uspects pushes a man, who appears to be a customer trying to leave, further into the store and restrains him near the counter as he points a gun at the clerk. The other suspect, stations himself on the other side of the counter, demands money from the clerk and hops over the counter with his gun aimed at the store employee. The clerk opens the drawer and the suspect grabs the dollar bills, looks under the tray and flees with his partner.

    Police did not release information on how much money was stolen.

    Police ask anyone with information to contact Det. A.J. Calvao at 203-581-5240.
