The Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office is searching for two suspects who robbed the Super Stop in Pateros at gunpoint Sunday evening.

A man and woman reportedly arrived at the store at 10:23 p.m. on foot with their faces covered. They held the clerk at gunpoint while forcing her to open the cash register.

They then took the cash and fled.

Nobody was injured.

The man was described as about 5-foot-6 wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, black tennis shoes and holding a blue or tan backpack.

The woman was about 5-foot-3, slender, with brown eyes and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, torn blue jeans, tan slippers and holding a large purple purse or bag.

The sheriff’s office is asking anyone who has information on the pair to contact them at 509-422-7232.

They also are saying that citizens should not make an attempt to detain them because they are known to be armed.
