Authorities continued searching Friday for two men who robbed a Lansing grocery store at gunpoint shortly after midnight Thursday.

Police responded to an alarm about 12:30 a.m. Thursday at Mitchell’s Foods at 18202 Torrence Ave. The clerk told officers two men, one of them armed with a handgun, entered the store and demanded money from the register, a statement from the village of Lansing said.

The clerk was struck in the head when the suspects tried to force him to open a locked back room, the statement said. No shots were fired during the robbery.

The clerk was taken to a hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries, the statement said.

The suspects were last seen running out of the store, the statement said. It is unknown how much money was stolen.

Anyone with information should call Lansing police at (708) 895-7150, the statement said.
