Police are searching for two men wanted in a robbery of a Wichita smoke shop.

Just after 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 29, two men entered Rock Road Tobacco at 100 N. Rock Rd. Armed with a shotgun, they demanded cash from the clerk.

The clerk briefly struggled with one suspect as the other man took cash and miscellaneous tobacco products. They were last seen running north on Rock Road. The gun was recovered about a block away.

The suspects were described as two white males in their 20s. One is about 5'10" tall and weighs about 180 pounds. The other is about 6' tall and weighs between 230 and 260 pounds. Both wore dark clothing, dark ball caps and bandanas.
