VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Police need help to identify three men who robbed a gas station at gunpoint.

Police say the men pictured at the right robbed a gas station in the 3000 block of Shore Drive at 11:50 p.m. on July 10.

The man in black was armed and forced a customer to the ground, then ordered the clerk to open the register.

According to police, here are descriptions of each suspect:

  1. Light skinned male, 20s - 30s, 5'4" -5'5," skinny build, wearing black hoodie, blue jeans, white shoes, black mask over face, gloves and armed with a silver/black handgun
  2. Black male, late teens-early 20s, 5'8" -5'9," skinny build, wearing a tie-dye hoodie with “Virginia" or possibly "Virginia Beach" on the front and black pants
  3. Black male, 5'4"-5'8," thin build, wearing a black T-shirt, white covering over his face and black pants.

Although the faces are hard to see, police are hoping someone will recognize the tie-dye hoodie.
