Phoenix police are asking the public's help to find two suspects who robbed a Circle K in early January. According to Phoenix PD, the two suspects entered the Circle K near Seventh Street and Thomas Road just before 2 a.m.

Police say the suspects acted like they were shopping and brought items to the counter. When the clerk was about to ring them up, one of the suspects jumped over the counter and the other suspect ran around the counter to confront the cashier.

Both suspects demanded money from the register and a suspect punched the victim in the face. 

The register opened and money was taken. Both of the suspects fled on foot in an unknown direction.
