A Bassett store was robbed at gunpoint by two masked men Thursday night.

The robbery happened around 10 p.m. at the Village Market, which is at 6601 Fairystone Park Highway. Deputies say two men walked into the store and pulled out a handgun while demanding money. The robbers also stole the clerk’s purse.

Both suspects were heavily clothed, and wore masks and gloves to hide their identity.
