The Circle Ks are located at 2041 W. Van Buren St. and 966 E. Van Buren St.

The suspects entered the stores with gun drawn. One of the men was armed with a crowbar and was seen smashing the front door windows.

The gunmen forced employees to open the cash registers at gunpoint.

They stole money and cigarettes, according to Silent Witness Sgt. Jamie Rothschild.

The suspects fled on foot.

People with any knowledge of their whereabouts are asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (480-948-6377) or 480-TESTIGO.
