Clayton Police Seek Robbery Suspects

The Clayton Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify two men who robbed a convenience store on US 70 Friday night.

It happened just after 5 p.m. at La Nueva Frontera at 10499 US Hwy 70 Business West in Clayton.

The store owner was alone when two men entered the business. One suspect had a handgun and demanded money. They duct-taped the owner’s hands and feet. During their search for money, a shopper walked in and the suspects also duct-taped that man’s hands and feet and took his wallet. Neither had to be treated for injuries.

The men then fled in a green Nissan Altima heading westbound on US 70 towards Raleigh.

Store surveillance cameras captured photos of the two men inside the store and their car outside the store.

Police are asking anyone who may recognize these young men or know where they are to call Clayton Police Detective Isaiah Ruffin at 919-553-1570 or the Clayton Crime Stoppers at 919-359-TIPZ (8479). Callers can remain anonymous.
