A cashier was punched in the face as two men robbed an Ypsilanti Township store at gunpoint this morning, a Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department media summary said.
The men, who were wearing masks, entered the store in the 2000 block of East Ellsworth Road at 2:20 a.m. while the cashier was in a back room, the summary said.
The cashier came out and was ordered to empty the register, the summary said. The robbers made off with an undisclosed amount of money.
