Two suspects are wanted in connection to an armed robbery at a Germantown 7-Eleven, Montgomery County police say. 

Detectives say around 12:45 a.m. on Sept. 12, two suspects went into a 7-Eleven in the 12300 block of Middlebrook Road in Germantown. One of them pulled out a gun, pointed it at an employee and forced the employee behind the cash register. 

The suspect demanded cash and the employee complied. The suspect then demanded that the employee open the store safe but the employee was unable to do so. The suspect then demanded personal property from the employee.
