Masked men carrying guns held up the Sunoco gas station at South Lakes Village Center on Wednesday, Fairfax County Police said.

Police said two men entered the store at 11900 South Lakes Dr. where one employee was working about 3 a.m.

One of the suspects allegedly displayed a gun and demanded money. The suspects took an undisclosed amount of money and fled, the victim told police.

The suspects were described as black, in their 20s or 30s, between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall and 150 to 160 pounds. Both wore dark-colored clothing and their faces were covered. The victim did not require medical attention.

Last week, the 7-Eleven on Soapstone Drive a few miles away was also robbed in a similar fashion. It is not yet known whether the incidents are related.
