Chattanooga police are on the lookout for two men they say robbed a Glass Street business at gunpoint.

Imad Rassas, who was working at Mimi Mini Mart at 2304 Glass St. on May 12, said two men entered the store wearing masks, brandishing handguns and demanding money.

After taking an undisclosed amount of cash, they fled, said police spokesman Officer Nathan Hartwig.

The first man is described as black, about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, wearing blue jeans, a black short-sleeve shirt, a black rag over his head and a Halloween mask.

The second man is described as black, shorter than the first suspect, wearing a black shirt, black pants and a black scarf or bandanna over his face, Hartwig said.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery can call the Chattanooga Police Department at 423-698-2525.
