PHOENIX -- Phoenix police are looking for the suspects responsible for armed robberies at several Valley stores.

Police say between Aug. 5 and Oct. 14, two to three men armed with handguns have entered several Valley stores, primarily cellular phone stores, demanding money and other property from victims.

Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump said the suspects are becoming increasingly more violent with their actions and one recent robbery resulted in a shooting between the suspects and a victim.

In some of the robberies, the suspects have been seen leaving in a four-door vehicle.

The suspects are described as Hispanic males between the ages of 20 and 30, 5 feet 6 inches to 6 feet tall, and 160 to 200 pounds.

Police have released a sketch of one of the suspects and surveillance video from one of the robberies.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Phoenix Police Department.
