PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Silent Witness is asking for the public's assistance in locating two suspects that have committed several armed robberies of Phoenix cell phone stores since January.

One of the suspects, a 20 to 25-year-old Hispanic male robbed a Phoenix MetroPCS on May 8, according to Silent Witness.

The suspect, wearing an Arizona Cardinals jersey, entered the store acting like a customer.

Once the MetroPCS employee went into the back room and opened the safe to retrieve a cell phone, the suspect pulled a gun from his waistband and entered the room, Silent Witness said.

The suspect cleared the safe of the cell phones, took cash from the register and fled on foot.

The other suspect in connection to some of these robberies is a 20 to 30-year-old male, Silent Witness said.
