SIOUX FALLS, SD -
One man is in custody charged with robbing a conveneince store early Thursday morning as police search for a second.
Sioux Falls Police say officers noticed two men who had their heads and hands covered walk up to the Cubby's convenience store on West 12th Street. Once inside, the two demanded money.
One man tried to get away but was captured. Nineteen-year-old Corbin James Stead is charged with robbery.
The second suspect was able to get away and the search for him continues.
A man who saw the robbery and arrest says it all happened very fast.
"I saw one guy come around the corner and then a second one. The second one had one glove and was trying to hold onto something on his face, which was a hair net or whatever. I don't know what it was, but it all happened so quick that before I knew it the Sioux Falls Police Department was in front of the store asking everyone to put their hands up."
And even though no one was hurt, Reyes says it was a scary situation.
"I thought I was going to get shot up. For a second there I thought I haven't done anything. I was just sitting here eating. Like I said I didn't realize what was going on for a split second there," Reyes said.
No one was injured. This is the fourth time this Cubby's convenience store has been robbed over the past month, including crimes on July 6, 19, and August 1.
