Montgomery County Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying suspects in an armed robbery on March 19 at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Wheaton.

According to an MCPD press release, two individuals entered the 7-Eleven store in the 11400 block on Georgia Avenue at around 12:08 a.m. One of the suspects approached an employee while pointing a handgun at them and demanded money from the cash registers.
