DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- A Dubuque convenience store clerk was robbed at knife point Monday evening.  It happened at the Friendly Locust Mart (formerly the West Locust Mart) at 408 West Locust.

The clerk told police that around 5:00 p.m.,  two men followed him into the store as he came in from a cigarette break.  He said one suspect showed a knife and demanded money.  The clerk opened the cash register and left the store.

Police say one suspect took money from the register and the second suspect stole merchandise.  Both suspects fled the scene, and police are actively looking for them.
