Deputies looking for two men who robbed grocery store at gunpoint


Deputies in Lancaster County are looking for two men they say robbed a local grocery store Wednesday evening.

The incident was reported at 9:05 p.m. at the Antioch Grocery on Flat Creek Road, according to a news release from the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office.

When deputies arrived the clerk said two unknown black male suspects entered the store with a handgun. 

One suspect jumped behind the counter and struck the clerk in the head. 

The suspects demanded money and fled the store with an undisclosed amount of money and merchandise. 

A witness in the parking lot reported that the suspects fled to a car that was parked in a driveway several houses down. 

The suspects drove off at a high rate of speed on Hwy 903 towards the City of Lancaster, according to the release. 

The clerk was treated by EMS for minor injuries and no other persons were injured.

The investigation is ongoing.
