    EAST LYME, Conn. (AP) — East Lyme police are looking for two suspects they say showed a knife and stole a car from a gas station in town.

    Police say a man and woman approached the vehicle at the Niantic Star Gas Station at about 6 p.m. Saturday and threatened an adult passenger with a knife.

    The passenger escaped but the suspects stole the vehicle and sped off.

    Investigators think the suspects tried to enter another vehicle while the driver was pumping gas, but that vehicle was locked.

    Witnesses are asked to contact police.
