FERRIDAY, La. (AP) - Authorities say they’re searching for two suspects who robbed a gas station attendant at gunpoint in Concordia Parish.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/2oo2pVC ) that Ferriday Police Department Investigator Richard Madison says they’re searching for two males who are wanted in connection to an armed robbery at Exxon on Saturday.

Madison says the suspects ran across the road and drew guns on the attendant and attempted to force the victim to the backside of the store.

Authorities say the victim grabbed a pole in an attempt to not be pulled behind the store and threw his wallet on the ground. One of the suspects grabbed the wallet and they fled the scene.

Police said they were reviewing camera footage from different businesses in the area.
