The Big H was again a victim of armed robbery Friday night, and police believe the two suspects responsible might be the same pair that held the convenience store up in March.
Around 11pm, Rome Police Sgt. Trixie Morgan says two black males dressed all in black entered the store and cornered the clerk. One of the suspects wielded a knife and the other a large stick, both demanding money out of the store’s safe. 
There was no safe, however, so the two took an undetermined amount of money from the register, along with beer and cigarettes, and then fled. 
According to Morgan, the clerk believes it was the same two suspects that robbed the store with a knife on March 22nd. 
Attempts to locate the assailants have been unsuccessful.
