An Exxon station in North Laurel was held up early yesterday by two men, one of them wielding a large knife, Howard County police said.
About 1 a.m., the men entered the gas station in the 8800 block of Gorman Road and ordered an employee to open the cash register, police said.
They took an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes and fled, police said.
The employee was not injured, and no one else was in the store at the time, police said.
Video surveillance cameras recorded the incident.
Police ask that anyone with information call 410-313-3200.
