Valley police are searching for two teenagers in connection to an early morning armed robbery at an area convenience store.
Police were called to the Circle K convenience store, 2905 20th Ave., around 2:30 a.m. Thursday.
The convenience store clerk told investigators that two suspects, one of whom was armed with a handgun, entered the store and demanded cash and merchandise. The suspects then left after they were given what they demanded, said police.

The first suspect was wearing a black or gray hoodie, black pants and white tennis shoes.
The second suspect was wearing a blue and yellow long-sleeve shirt. The faces of both suspects were covered during the robbery, police said.
Police ask that anyone with information on the identity of the suspects to call the Valley Police Department at (334) 756-5200 or the Valley Area Crime Stoppers at (334) 756-8200.
