Two men, including one who Waco police say pressed a gun to a clerk’s neck during the robbery of a convenience store in September, were indicted Wednesday on aggravated robbery charges.

A McLennan County grand jury indicted Teriontie K. Griffin, 19, and Skyler Christopher Durham, 17, in the Sept. 19 robbery of the Valero Corner Store, 4025 Bosque Blvd.

According to records filed in the case, police said Griffin and Durham entered the store about 2 a.m. and “worked in concert to rob the store.” Police said Griffin pointed the handgun at the employee and threatened the clerk while Durham jumped over the counter to get to the cash registers.

“When the registers wouldn’t open, Griffin pressed the barrel of the handgun into the clerk’s neck until he opened the register,” an arrest affidavit states. “Durham then removed the money from the open registers.”

Both Griffin and Durham ran from the store on foot with about $200, according to records. The affidavit says Durham could be heard calling Griffin by his nickname on security video inside the store.

Durham and Griffin both remained jailed Wednesday. Durham, who also was arrested on a Class B misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana and unrelated state-jail felony charge of evading arrest in a vehicle, a Class A misdemeanor charge of evading on foot and a bond forfeiture charge from a theft of a firearm case, remained jailed under bonds totaling $319,000.

Griffin, who has pending charges for burglary of a habitation and possession of marijuana, remained jailed under bonds totaling $222,000.
