(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) St. Joseph police are searching for two suspects after a robbery at a gas station on the Belt Highway.

Around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night, officers were called to 3002 North Belt Highway at Valero gas station after receiving a call of a robbery.

According to Sergeant Brad Kerns, two males - one in a blue hoodie and one in a black hoodie - wore face masks. Each suspect displayed a firearm and demanded money from the clerk inside.

The suspects fled the scene northbound on foot with an unknown amount of cash. Officers suspect the men might have gotten into a vehicle after distancing themselves from the area.

People were inside the gas station at the time of the robbery, but police said no injuries were reported.

The incident is still under investigation.

If you have any information on the suspects, call the St. Joseph tips hotline at 816-238-TIPS.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
