COVINGTON -- It wasn't fun and games Friday night at Game Time on Wheat Street when employees were robbed at gunpoint.

According to the Covington Police Department, about 9:30 p.m., two black men brandishing handguns entered the establishment and robbed the night manager of an undetermined amount of cash.

Lt. Wendell Wagstaff said there were three employees and a visitor on location at the time of the incident. No one was reported injured.

Victims said the two men were dressed in all black. One was wearing a black bandanna and the second was wearing a red bandanna and possibly a red hat. They left the establishment on foot.

The victims said it appeared the pair were attempting to disguise their voices when speaking and pointing guns at everyone there. A jacket believed to have belonged to one of the men was found behind the store.

Wagstaff said the case is still under investigation, and detectives have two suspects who are being sought for questioning.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the CPD at 770-786-7605. Tips can be given to the CPD anonymously by visiting their website at www.covingtonpolice.com and clicking on "Most Wanted" and then "Anonymous Tips."
