Wood County Sheriff's deputies are searching for two men that robbed an adult bookstore in Parkersburg at gunpoint.

The men were wearing dark colored hoodies, bandanas and gloves.

One of the men is described as a black male, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, weighing 280 to 300 pounds. The other man is around the same height, weighing 180 pounds.

Deputies say an employee at the Pioneer Adult Book Store called 911 late Friday night saying he was robbed.

Deputies say the larger man pulled out a silver handgun and demanded money.

The men emptied the cash register and took the clerk to a back room where deputies say the clerk was pushed down on the floor and ordered to stay under a table as they fled through the back door.
