Police are still searching for two men after a Sprint store in north Lincoln is robbed.

It happened just after 9 a.m. Wednesday and although no one was injured, it left nearby store employees feeling uneasy.

"It scares me a lot," Kelli Post from CK & Co. Salon said.

Post was waiting for a client inside her hair salon when she heard loud voices coming from next door. Minutes later, she says several police officers pulled into the parking lot after the report of a robbery.

"It's very scary and I'm shaken even though it didn't happen to me," Post added.

Police say two white males in their 20s walked into Sprint near 27th and Superior. One man was armed with a gun and the other with a baton, similar to what police officers carry. Officials say the suspects took off with cash, tablets and more than 20 cell phones.

John Nowak who works at Juice Stop next door was looking out the window and saw the suspects as they left on foot.

"They had a gate to them but they weren't running," Nowak said. "One of them had a black bag."

Several police officers and state troopers searched for the suspects, but believe a vehicle may have been waiting close by.

"We tried a dog track with the State Patrol's dogs and it kind of ended over at the road, indicating that perhaps, they had a car parked near here," Capt. David Beggs said.

Police are still investigating the robbery and looking for the suspects.
