Police are looking for two men that reportedly robbed a Family Dollar store in Springfield.

Officers were dispatched to the store, 2129 E. Main St., around 5:50 p.m. on Tuesday for a robbery, according to a Springfield police report.

When police arrived, they spoke with one of the employees who said she was working the register when an unknown man walked into the store, up to the register with a plastic bag and said “put it in the bag,” the report said.

The employee told police she saw a black and silver handgun in the man’s left shorts pocket, but he didn’t used it during the robbery.

“(The employee) gave the male all the money in her register. The male then went to the other register where (another employee) was working. (The employee) stated the male told him to give him all the money in the register. (The employee) told him he could not get the register open and the male left out the front of the store,” the report said.
