Masked Robber Pistol-Whips Woman, Police Say
Police say two Exxon employees were tied up by masked robbers Monday morning.
The robbers came in before dawn, wearing masks. They pistol-whipped one clerk, got the other to open the register, and then tied up both women.
That's the account Wilson police give for what happened early Monday at the Square One Exxon on Northampton Street.
According to police, two women were working at the station around 3:30 a.m. when it was robbed by a pair of men, both wearing masks.
One robber chased one of the clerks down, hit her with a handgun, and then tied her up.
The second robber jumped over the counter, got the cashier to open the register, and then tied her up as well. It's not clear how much cash they got away with.
The robbers were tall, thin and wearing masks and gloves. The employees refused medical treatment, police said.
Police ask anyone with information to call Det. Christian Meehan at 610-428-3978.
