Knife-Wielding Suspects Rob North Arlington 7-Eleven

A pair of men, each armed with a knife, held up the 7-Eleven store on the 4500 block of Lee Highway last night.

Police were dispatched to the store just after 11:15 p.m. Sunday after the suspects pointed knives at the store clerk and stole cash and cigarettes, according to a police crime report and scanner traffic at the time.

Both suspects wore masks and dark clothing. They fled the scene by vehicle. No injuries were reported.
