Two gunmen dropped into a Huntington area check cashing store through a hole in the roof and robbed the business.
The shakened clerk described the men as been the size of football players. One was about 6-feet-4, 280 pounds, the other 5-feet-10 and 185 pounds, Fairfax County Police said.
"It's incredible. Somehow they squeezed through," said police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell.
Detectives interviewed the female clerk at length, and she was sure both suspects shimmied in through the 3-foot by 2-foot wide hole on the roof of the ACE Cash Express, at 2254 Huntington Avenue, Caldwell said.
At about 9: 15 a.m. Monday, the employee heard a crash, turned and saw a man pointing a pistol at her. The gunman grabbed her, and a second gunman, demanded that she open the business' safe. The men took the money and fled.
The suspects were described as being black, in their 20s, wearing masks, gloves and dark-hooded sweat shirts. The smaller man wore dark sunglasses and a red bandana.
