Two men robbed the T-Mobile store off Bullsboro Drive around noon Friday and were still at large hours later.
A gunman entered the store and ordered the employees to the back room, said Sergeant Chad Wood with the Newnan Police Department. About 20 seconds later another man wearing a mask entered the store.
The gunman was not wearing a mask when he entered, but put it on later, the investigator said. After ordering the employees to the back, the two men grabbed various merchandise before fleeing on foot.
Both suspects were described as black. One suspect was wearing an Atlanta Braves hat, a multi-colored shirt with the letters ROC on it and blue jeans. The second suspect was wearing a multi-plaid shirt and blue jeans.
