Two men have been taken into custody following a gas station robbery in Henderson Thursday night.

It happened just after 9 Thursday night at the Swifty's gas station on South Green Street.

Henderson Police say two men with covered faces robbed the station attendant at gunpoint and made away with cash.

That attendant, Channing Duval wasn't injured. We talked to Channing after the incident and he described what he went through.

"They pointed it directly at my head and told me to give them the money," he said. "I immediately did, not wanting to be shot. I'm still shaken. I had never had that happen before and I'd never think it would happen to me in a place like Henderson," said Channing.

Two suspects, Andrew Harris and Eddie Carbon, were taken into custody just down the road from the gas station minutes after the robbery was reported.  They were taken to HPD headquarters for questioning.

Police say after questioning Harris and Carbon they were both arrested and charged with armed robbery.

The money was recovered.
