SALEM — Police say two men showed a large kitchen knife during a robbery at El Punto Market at 21 Salem St. last night.

No injuries were reported.

The incident occurred about 8:30 p.m., according to radio reports.

The suspects were described as Hispanic men, one of whom was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, a white T-shirt, dark-colored jeans, white sneakers and a bandana over his face. The other was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, dark-colored jeans, gray sneakers and a mask over his face. Radio reports indicated that both men were also wearing gloves.

The suspects were last seen taking a right onto Harbor Street from Salem Street.

Police searched the area to no avail.

An officer said last night it was unclear whether the suspects had made off with anything from the store.
