Two armed men wearing face masks robbed a Dollar General store in south Wichita late Wednesday night, police said.

The men walked into the store at Pawnee and Southeast Boulevard shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday and ordered the clerk to give them cash and cigarettes, Lt. Doug Nolte said. They ordered the clerk and a customer to get on their knees, pointing their handguns at them.

They then left the store, Nolte said. Another person witnessed the crime, but was hiding and was not seen by the robbers.

Police are reviewing security video for additional clues in the case, Nolte said.
