PALM BAY, Fla. -

Palm Bay police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred early Sunday morning. 

Police said around 3:15 a.m. Sunday, two men entered the Circle K store located at 4950 Babcock Street NE. 

Police said one of the suspects went towards the rear of the store while the other suspect attempted to purchase a "Black and Mild" cigar. 

Police said when the clerk opened the register, the suspect pointed a small black handgun at her and demanded the cash from the register. 

The gun is described as having wooden grips and what appears to be a homemade silencer, police said.
