EL MIRAGE, Ariz. - El Mirage police officers are looking for two suspects who robbed a cell phone store last week.

When officers arrived at the G Wireless cell phone store on Friday, they found an employee who had been tied up.

The victim told police a male and a female entered the store and walked around as if they were looking for a phone. The male suspect then brandished a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded all the money from the register and the safe.

The male suspect then zip-tied the employee's hands behind her back and took an undisclosed amount of cash, three iPhones and an iPod.

The female suspect stayed at the front of the store as a lookout

Police described the armed suspect as a black male in his early 20s, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, 150 pounds, wearing a white shirt, dark jeans, gray shoes and a gray hat. He was wearing a large white watch on his right wrist. It also appeared that he was wearing a ballistic vest under his shirt.

The male also had tattoos on both arms down to his wrists and the left side of his neck.

The Asian female suspect was in her early 20s, around 5 feet 3 inches tall, wearing a white shirt with "LOVE" in black letters on the front, jeans shorts, black shoes and large black sunglasses.

During the investigation, police reviewed surveillance video that showed an early 2000 model black Cadillac Escalade pulling into the parking lot.
