PHOENIX -- Phoenix police are asking for the public's help to identify and locate three suspects involved in a robbery at a Circle K on March 25.

The two males and one female entered the convenience store at McDowell Road and 67th Avenue in Phoenix at approximately 2 a.m. Police said the suspects threatened to harm the clerk as they took beer and chips from the shelves then walked out without paying for the items.

Minutes later, the two male suspects returned to steal more items. One of them got more beer while the other jumped on top of the sales counter, breaking and removing the register's coin machine from the store.

All three suspects left in a gray Chevy Tahoe.

One suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 180 pounds with black hair, a mustache and wearing a black T-shirt with "MORE" across the front.

The second suspect is described as a Hispanic or white male, 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 170 pounds with a "fade" haircut, wearing a black T-shirt and gray denim shorts.

The third suspect is described as a Hispanic female, 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 200 pounds with black hair, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

Police have released surveillance video and photos in the hopes that someone will recognize the suspects.

A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest. Contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or
