 • ROBBERY: Police are investigating an armed robbery in the area of 29th Street and Grand Avenue. A clerk at a convenience store told officers two suspects entered the business at 1:50 a.m. Saturday. Both suspects were wearing black hoodies. One had a red bandana covering his face and the other concealed his face with a white cloth. One of the suspects pulled a handgun from the waistband of his pants and racked the slide as he entered the store. That suspect told the clerk, "Come over here, put your hands up and I won't have to shoot you." The suspect demanded cash and the clerk opened a register and placed the drawer on a counter. A suspect then grabbed the drawer and both men ran out of the store, heading westbound.
