Police are looking for two gunmen who robbed a man in the parking lot of a mall just after dark around 6:00 o'clock on Monday.
Luckily, police say the victim at the Golden East Crossing Mall in Rocky Mount wasn't hurt. But shoppers say the incident is a scary reminder to be extra careful while shopping during the holidays.
Police say there's a few things you can do to help keep yourself safe, including exiting stores in pairs, parking in well-lit areas, and having a security officer walk you to your car if you feel unsafe. Officers say it's also important for people to remain alert at all times.
Officers say it's also a good idea to store your merchandise in the trunk or cover it up if you're planning to go back inside a store.
