An attendant at the Super Shine gas station on Quincy Avenue told Braintree police that he was robbed by two men on Wednesday night.
The crime happened at about 9:30 p.m. and the suspects – a black male and white male – got away with cigarettes and money, Deputy Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement.
The men did not show a weapon, but one of them held his hand in his hooded sweatshirt as if he had a weapon, Jenkins said.
"After the men were given a sum of money, they fled on foot down Quincy Avenue towards Quincy," Jenkins said. "Two witnesses saw the men running down Quincy Avenue and reported that they entered a white or gray, newer model four door sedan that was parked between two businesses near the Quincy line."
The white male was described as being between 30 and 35 years old with possibly a scar on his face, about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds, wearing a light grey hooded sweatshirt, Jenkins said. The black male was in his 30s, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 180 pounds, with a goatee or scruffy beard and wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt.
