No one was injured this morning after two men robbed a convenience store in the 700 block of Eraste Landry Road at gunpoint.

Lafayette Police Public Information Officer Nicole Benoit reports that the clerk told officers two men, each carrying a handgun, came in around 2:25 a.m. to rob the store.

The clerk said one man demanded a pack of cigarettes and money.  The clerk turned over a pack of smokes and money; the robbers then fled on foot.

The clerk described the suspects as:

  • One of the suspects was a light complexioned slim black male, with a red cover over his face and he was wearing a dark hoody with stripes.
  • The second suspect was a black male who was wearing a dark gray hoody with lime green writing on the front and had an orange cover over his face.
