CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- An auto lot owner says an armed robbery where his employees were threatened, robbed and pistol-whipped was so terrifying, the employees might not return to work.

Two men walked into Mike’s Auto Sales of Charlotte on Wilkinson Boulevard around noon Tuesday and committed the crimes at gunpoint.

Surveillance pictures show the two men plain as day.  Police hope someone recognizes the suspects and contacts them.

"Anytime I think you get threatened for your life, you know, you're thinking is different. It's not every day somebody holds a gun to your head and threatens to kill you,” the owner said.

"The money, you know, I’m not worried about, but to see my best friends have to go through that, I feel for them,” he said.

The shop has been in business for 26 years and has never been robbed before, according to the owner.
