PHOENIX -- Police are asking for the public's help to identify and locate two men who robbed a Phoenix pharmacy.

Shortly after 8 a.m. on May 15, the suspects walked into the Express Aid Pharmacy near 23rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road and approached the employee at the counter.

Surveillance video shows one suspect pulled out a gun then both men jumped over the counter.

Police said one suspect held the gun against the victim's head as the other suspect went into the back office and put bottles of oxycodone in a black bag that he brought with him. That suspect then ran out of the office and punched the victim in the head.

Both suspects ran out of the pharmacy.

The suspect with the gun is described as a black male, 20 to 25 years old, 6 feet tall and 180 pounds wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt and dark sunglasses.

The other suspect is described as a black male, 20 to 25 years old, 6 feet tall and 225 pounds wearing a white shirt, dark pants, black hat and sunglasses.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or silentwitness.org. A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered.
