Police are investigating an armed robbery Monday afternoon at a convenience store in Bloomington’s southwest side.
The robbery happened around 1:50 p.m. at Six Points Food and Liquor, 1001 Six Points Road, police said.
The suspects were two males, one armed with a gun, who demanded money from the store employee. The suspects took an undisclosed amount of money then left on foot.

The employee was not injured during Monday's incident.
The Six Points Road suspects were described as black males, between 30-35 years old, wearing all black with their faces partially covered. One suspect was wearing glasses/goggles and had facial hair.
