Eau Claire Police are looking for two people involved in an armed robbery on the city's southside early this morning.
Police say the men went into Adam's Automotive on Craig Rd. just before 1 a.m.
Lt. Eric Larsen of the Eau Claire Police says one suspect displayed a knife and ordered the clerk to open the cash register drawer. That suspect then emptied the drawer and they both left.
Surveillance video shows the suspects browsing the store before demanding money and fleeing on foot.
The suspects are both black men.
One is in his late 20s. He's around 5-feet-7-inches tall and between 140 and 150 pounds. He has very short hair and was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt.
The other suspect is described as older. He's around 6-feet-tall and 200 pounds. He has a thick, bushy mustache and was wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt with gold or yellow writing on the front.
The clerk on duty was not hurt.
If you have any information, you're asked to call the Eau Claire Police Department at (715) 839-4972.
