Chaddrick Lee Smith, 22, and Kwamae Tywon Triplett, 20, were arrested at about 12:40 a.m. Wednesday at Smith's residence.
According to the police report, two employees were inside the store around midnight while another sat on a curb during a break. Two men approached the employee, who asked if they needed help.
The employee reported he then saw one of the men brandishing a handgun and noticed their faces were covered. The suspects ordered the employee inside the store.
While one of the suspects held a gun on him, the employee reportedly opened the register and handed the cash inside, around $200 in small bills, to the other suspect. They then fled east on foot.
