    On Monday, two male robbers walked into the 7-Eleven on James Street just after 3 a.m., officials said. The man with the guns demanded money from the clerk while the other man acted as a lookout.

    Although they walked in separately, the men were caught on surveillance video together, police said. Robinson was not wearing a mask, according to police.
