Westerville police seek two in armed robbery

Two men are being sought by Westerville police following an armed robbery about 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 23 at the Red Skye Wireless AT&T store, 786 S. State St.

According to Westerville police, the two men entered the store with one of them brandishing a handgun.

They forced the store’s lone employee to open the safe before forcing her to wait in a restroom for approximately 15 minutes.

The men stole numerous electronic devices and fled the scene in a dark-colored, four-door sedan, police said.

The store employee, who was not harmed in the robbery, described one suspect as a tall black man and the other as a short, stocky black man wearing red sweatpants and a black T-shirt.

Westerville police officers were canvassing the area Tuesday afternoon as detectives processed the scene.
