Men rob store wearing Iron Man, Angry Birds masks

COVINGTON -- Police are offering a reward in hopes of capturing two suspects who robbed a package store Monday afternoon disguised as Iron Man and an Angry Birds character.

At 5:48 p.m. two masked suspects wearing all black clothing entered S&S Package Store at 6138 Monticello St. and placed a white plastic bag on the counter, according to a Covington Police report. The Iron Man masked suspect pointed a handgun at the clerk, who opened the cash register drawer, according to the report, and the two suspects grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash. The incident was captured on video surveillance.

The suspects, described as two black males, fled on foot towards a wooded area in a southwest direction that would have taken them towards Green Acres Drive, said Covington Police Capt. Ken Malcom.

Malcom said police have no suspects at this time. The Covington Police Department is offering an undisclosed reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspects. Anyone with information should call the police tip line at 770-385-2144.
