Officer responded to reports of an armed robbery around 6PM on Wednesday at Thirsty's, located at 1120 E. Church St.  An investigation revealed that the two victims were sitting inside their parked vehicle in front of the building, when the suspect approached the driver.  After engaging in conversation, the suspect grabbed the driver's arm and demanded money and their cell phones.

The victim claimed he saw a handgun in the suspect's waistband and handed over his items.  The suspect then entered a vehicle parked at the gas pumps and fled the area.
