Danville police are looking for two men who robbed the Fas Mart on Goodyear Boulevard Saturday night. The clerk told police the men came into the store, pulled a pistol and demanded money from the register. The employee gave the man with the gun an undisclosed amount of money. The same man then demanded money from the lottery machine.
When the clerk could not open it, the man pointed the gun at the machine and pulled the trigger two times. When the gun wouldn't fire, both men fled the store on foot.
