LILBURN -- Two men -- one wearing a hockey mask over his face, the other a bandana -- robbed a Lilburn package store at gunpoint last week. Authorities need the public's help identifying them.

According to Capt. Thomas Bardugon of the Lilburn Police Department, the two black males entered and robbed the Depot Package just before 9 p.m. on June 27. Surveillance footage from the store located at 4280 Lawrenceville Highway shows the men forcing a store employee behind the register with a gun to the back of his head.

Police also obtained video from the Pawn Mart next door, which showed one of the suspects "for several minutes before the armed robbery." There was no description of a getaway vehicle available.

Further details were not released.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lilburn Police Det. Kim Banks at 770-638-2220 or kbanks@cityoflilburn.com.
