LAKE ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Two suspects are in custody after they allegedly robbed the Circle K in Lake St. Louis at 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Witnesses told police that a man and woman walked into the store, and that the male suspect faked a medical emergency. When the clerk went to assist the man, the woman went behind the counter and stole several cartons of cigarettes. The clerk attempted to stop her as they exited the store, when she allegedly pulled out a gun.

The suspects initially fled the store, but St. Ann police later apprehended them. Charges are waiting to be filed while the case is still under investigation.
