BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

At 9 o'clock Sunday night, police say two men wearing masks rushed into the Beaufort Autozone on Boundary Street and pointed their handguns at two employees who were trying to close for the night.

The suspects ordered the workers to go to the back of the building and demanded all the cash in the store.

A customer walked in at the same time and the gunmen forced that person to kneel down in a back room next to the employees.

After getting the money, the two suspects ran away and one of the employees called 911.

"It appears they had planned the incident fairly well, they knew where to go, where the money was going to be, they were in and out fairly quickly which would lead you to believe they had done some prior planning," said Matthew Clancy, Beaufort Police Chief.

This is the second time in three years the Beaufort Autozone has been robbed.

Police are hoping you can help identify the suspects from these photos.

If you have any information on this case, please contact the Beaufort Police Department.
