Wood River Police are following leads following an armed robbery at an AT&T Store Thursday night. Authorities responded to a call reporting the robbery at 8:15 p.m. Police say two men confronted an employee outside of the store and followed her into the business through a side door.
The suspects told the employee they had a gun but never displayed it during the hold up according to Wood River Deputy Police Chief Dan Bunt. He says there was no video in the store so they are now looking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects.

The suspects are described as a heavy set, white male, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall, in his mid-20’s with a buzz hair cut and a thin, black male, roughly 6 feet tall, in his early 30’s.
