McMECHEN -

Police in McMechen are searching for a pair of armed robbers that hit Embers Bar late Sunday night.

Police say the two men entered the bar shortly after midnight, just as the Steelers game was ending and the patrons were emptying out.

They showed a gun and forced the bartender to the ground, face down and removed money from the cash register and fled the scene.

The two suspects are being described as males; one was wearing a navy hoodie with a cammo jacket, a ski mask and gloves. The other suspect was wearing a black hoodie with a ski mask and gloves.

Police are not releasing how much money they got away with, and are waiting to see if there is surveillance video of the incident.
