PHOENIX – Silent Witness is offering a reward to help locate two suspects involved in a robbery at a west Phoenix convenience store.

At approximately 4:30 a.m. on June 26, two Hispanic males entered the QuikTrip at 99th Avenue and Camelback Road and tried to purchase beer after hours, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

When the store clerk told them they couldn't, they demanded money. The clerk placed the cash drawer on the counter and walked away.

Surveillance video showed the suspects took the money and fled.

Police said one of the suspects was cursing and the other was crying during the robbery. Investigators initially thought the suspect was mocking the clerk, but it turns out the suspect was actually crying.

One suspect is described as 23 to 25 years old, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall, 175 to 180 pounds with a shaved head. The other suspect is described as 19 to 20 years old, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall, 125 to 130 pounds with uneven teeth and a tattoo of a star or sun on his neck.

Police released the surveillance video and photos of the suspects.

Silent Witness is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and/or indictment of the suspects.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or at silentwitness.org.
