PHOENIX -- Police are asking the public for help identifying two suspects in an aggravated robbery at a Phoenix convenience store.

Shortly after 4 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 21, a man reportedly entered the Circle K near Seventh Avenue and Beardsley Road and ordered the clerk and another occupant to go behind the counter.

Police said he tied up the victims with zip ties and had them sit on the floor.

He then secured the front doors with a zip tie and placed a "closed" sign on the door.

The man loaded up numerous cartons of cigarettes and a coin machine tray before fleeing in a silver 1990 Buick driven by another person, according to police.

The suspect who entered the store is described as a 5-foot-9 white man in his mid-40s. He was about 195 pounds and had brown hair. He was wearing a red bandanna, a short-sleeved khaki shirt and light-colored shorts.

Police do not have a description of the driver.
