PHOENIX -- Police hope surveillance photos and a reward will lead them to the two men behind a robbery aboard a Light Rail train.
It happened just before 1 a.m. on Saturday, June 29.
The victims -- a 21-year-old man and a 26-year-old man -- were riding the eastbound train. When it stopped at 38th and Washington streets, the suspects got off the train.
One of the suspects, a Hispanic man between 20 and 30 years old, got back on and grabbed the 21-year-old's phone. He then demanded the 26-year-old's phone. When the older victim refused to cooperate, the suspect punched him in the face, according to Sgt. Darren Burch of Silent Witness.
During all of this, the second suspect, a Hispanic male between 17 and 20 years old, was standing in the doorway of the train, pointing a gun at the two victims.
The older suspect is about 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighs about 150 pounds. He has dark hair in a buzz cut and several tattoos -- an "E" on his right forearm, "CHUCKS" on his right arm, and a cross on his left shoulder.
The suspect who held the gun on the victims is about 5 feet 6 inches tall, and weighs about 120 pounds. He, too, has dark buzzed hair. The victims told police he spoke with a Spanish accent.
