CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Police in Chandler are searching for the men responsible for robbing a check cashing business near Ray Road and Arizona Avenue.

According to authorities, the suspects climbed onto the roof of Ace Check Cashing on Wednesday morning and waited for the first employee to arrive.

A woman eventually entered the business, and the suspects dropped through the ceiling and into the building.

The men assaulted and handcuffed the woman before stealing money from the safe and cash drawers.

A witness told police she saw two males dressed in black running from the front of the business towards the alley in the back.

The suspects are described as possibly black males. They are believed to have committed a similar robbery in Phoenix earlier this week.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Chandler Police Department at 480-782-4130.
