Gunmen robbed Harrisburg couple in front of children

Harrisburg police are looking for the gunmen who robbed a store in front of the owners' three small children.

One of the robbers confronted a woman at the register of Chen's Mini Market, at 1106 Herr Street, while the other confronted a man near the back room Tuesday night, police said.

The gunmen demanded all the money in the register and fled with a small amount of cash at around 9:30 p.m., police said. The victims were not harmed.

The store owners described one of the gunmen as tall, thin black male in his 20s. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a red ski mask and was armed with a handgun, police said.

The other robber was said to be short and thin, also black in his 20s, and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a
bandanna covering part of his face. He was armed with a rifle or shotgun, police said.

Anyone with information may call Harrisburg police at 717-255-3183 or 717-255-3114.
