The Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office is asking for information in a armed robbery investigation.

Deputies say the incident happened on September 14, at 9:14pm at the Dollar General on S. Chataignier Road.

Two unknown male suspects armed with handguns reportedly entered the store and pointed them at employees while forcing one to the ground.

Deputies say they were last seen heading south on Chataignier Road.
