A man says two gunmen with ski masks tried to hold him up early this morning outside a Kinston pharmacy.
Kinston police say Anthony Turner told them he was trying to rent a movie from the Red Box at the Walgreens on North Herritage Street around 1:30 a.m.
Turner says an older model black two door vehicle pulled up and the two men in ski masks approached him. The men were dressed in all black and demanded money from the man. Turner showed them his empty wallet and the two left without taking anything.
Their vehicle was last seen heading east on Plaza Boulevard.
