Two gas station employees were robbed at gunpoint and forced into a cooler, according to a Cleveland police report.

The report states around 3:30 a.m. on Nov. 27, two men wearing all black clothing and ski masks entered Q's Gas and Go, 4322 Clark Ave., through a door behind the register, pointed guns at the clerks and ordered them to go into the back room of the store.  

When one of the clerks tripped and fell onto the floor, one of the suspects — described as a heavy-set man about 5-foot-inches tall and weighing around 300 pounds — grabbed the employee by his shirt collar and dragged him across the floor.  Both suspects then forced the employees into the store's cooler, the report said.

The employees waited about 15 minutes before leaving the cooler and calling police.  

According to the police report, the two suspects took about $1500 in cash, 31 cartons of Newport cigarettes and a small store safe.

The incident is under investigation.  No arrests have been made.
