NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Two armed men robbed a Circle K convenience store Monday morning in the 700 block of Howard Avenue.

Surveillance cameras captured images of the pair.

New Orleans police say it happened around 2:30 a.m. when the men walked into the store and acted as if they were going to buy something. Police say moments later one of the men put a pistol in the store clerk's back while she was cleaning and demanded cash. The clerk handed the suspects cash and two packs of cigarettes. The men ran out of the store. No one was hurt.
