Two employees at a 7-Eleven store along W.Va. 115 east were ordered on the floor of the store early Wednesday morning while one of two masked men tried to open a safe, police said.
It is believed the two men, including one wielding a handgun, arrived at the convenience store at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue by car, said Charles Town Police Chief Mike Aldridge.
After entering the store at 2:41 a.m., one of the men placed the two female clerks on the floor while the second man went behind the counter to a safe, Aldridge said.
