Police: 7-11 in Goshen robbed at gunpoint late Saturday

Second armed robbery of a gas station in a week

GOSHEN — Goshen police are currently investigating the armed robbery of a 7-11 convenience store that occurred at 11:45 p.m. Saturday in Goshen, the second such robbery of a convenience store in the Goshen area in less than a week.

According to Goshen police, officers were dispatched to the 7-11 at 2220 Elkhart Road late Saturday night in reference to an armed robbery that had just occurred.

Upon arrival, officers reportedly spoke with a 7-11 employee who indicated that two males dressed in dark clothing and wearing masks entered the store, one displaying a handgun, and demanded money.

An undetermined amount of money was taken during the robbery, police said, noting that the suspects also took cash from a customer who was in the store at the time of the robbery.

Following the robbery, the suspects reportedly left the store and headed west.

It has not been determined if this robbery is associated with the suspects in the robbery of a Marathon station on North Main Street that occurred Thursday evening, police said. The incident remains under investigation.
