PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police are looking for two men who are accused of robbing a northeast Portland Plaid Pantry store at gunpoint Wednesday morning.

Officers responded to the Plaid Pantry convenience store at 6010 Northeast Halsey St. just before 4 a.m.

An employee said two men, one of whom had a handgun, told the employee to lie on the floor while they tried to break into the ATM inside the store.

The suspects tried for several minutes to break into the ATM, but were unsuccessful and left the store empty-handed.

Officers searched the area around the store but didn't find anyone matching the suspects' descriptions.

The employee said the suspect with the handgun was a black male, possibly in his teens, wearing black clothing.

The other suspect was also described as black, in his early 20s and wearing light-colored clothing.

Anyone with information on this case should call Portland Police robbery detectives at (503) 823-0405.
