Two suspects are on the loose after allegedly robbing the Verizon store near Eastern and St. Rose as it was opening for the day.

It happened just after 8 a.m.  Two managers at the store were opening up shop when two black males ambushed them with guns.

The victims were allegedly pushed to the ground and held at gunpoint.  One of them had a gun to here head as she showed them where the money was.

Kelley McCullough's wife was one of the victims.  He says it was a traumatizing experience for her. "This has become personal," he says. "You see this all the time around town and you just pray they get caught."

He says according to hit wife, it seems the crooks may have cased the store because they seemed to know the schedule and where things were kept.

Investigators are also reviewing surveillance video to help catch the crooks.  If you have any information, contact Henderson Police.
