Police are searching for two masked men who, armed with a shotgun, robbed a 7-Eleven store on Stewart Avenue in Hicksville early Wednesday.

Nassau County police said the robbery occurred at 2:12 a.m., when there were two employees -- but no customers -- in the store.

There were no reported injuries, police said.

Police said the suspects were both about 6-foot and between 180 and 200 pounds. Both wore masks and hooded shirts and demanded cash.

The employees turned over cash, their iPhones and the keys to one of their vehicles, police said. The suspects then fled in the victim's car.

Additional details were not immediately available.

Police ask anyone with information about the robbery to call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.
