A Waco convenience store was robbed at gunpoint late Friday night, and the two robbers are on the run, according to police.

Police said they received a call about a robbery at the Alon gas station at South 3rd Street and La Salle Avenue about 11:50 p.m. Friday.

Officers learned two people wearing dark clothing and bandanas entered the convenience store, displayed a rifle, and demanded money from the clerk.

They got away in a silver or gray four-door sedan with a small amount of cash and cigarettes, police said.
