GULFPORT -- Police are asking for the public's help in an armed robbery case involving two men, one of whom police say wore pajama pants when he implied he had a handgun.
The holdup was reported about 2:15 a.m. April 14 at the Exxon at 1119 30th Avenue.
The clerk reported a male had come in the store wearing a green shirt and pajama pants and had a brief conversation and left, police Sgt. Damon McDaniel said. The man returned minutes later with his arm under a sweat shirt. He claimed he had a gun and demanded money.
During the holdup, a second man came in the store and stayed by the entrance, McDaniel said.

The first man took an undisclosed amount of money and both left the gas station in a silver car, he said.
The one who implied he was armed was wearing a blue hoodie sweat shirt and pajama pants with "South Park" logos, McDaniel said.
The one who stood at the door wore a long-sleeved dark shirt with white writing, dark pants and a dark-colored baseball cap.
McDaniel said they should be considered armed and dangerous.
