Police say a man and a woman robbed a convenience store in northeastern Colorado Springs late Saturday, making off with cash and lottery scratch tickets before fleeing into the night.
Officers were called to the 7-Eleven store at 6025 Constitution Ave. just before a midnight. A clerk there told police that the couple came into the store just before midnight and pulled handguns while demanding the loot.
The robbers got what they wanted and left the store on foot. Police raced to the area and used a tracking dog in a bid to find the couple.
Officers say they’ve surmised that the two raced away in a car that had been parked nearby.
