PHOENIX – Police are asking for the public's help to identify two suspects involved in a robbery at a Phoenix Cricket store.
The suspects entered the business at 43rd Avenue and Indian School Road just before 6 p.m. on Oct. 24 and pretended to be customers, according to police.
One suspect asked the employee if he could look at a phone and when he obtained it, he walked toward the exit. At the same time, the second suspect took a phone from the shelf and also walked toward the exit.
When the female employee tried to stop the first suspect, he shoved and punched her in the upper chest.
The suspects ran out of the store with the phones and got into a maroon Ford Expedition.
The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male, between 24 and 26 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 250 pounds, wearing a black shirt and shorts. The second suspect is described as a Hispanic male, between 24 and 26 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 175 pounds, wearing a light-colored shirt and dark pants.
Police have released surveillance video of the robbery in the hopes that someone will recognize the suspects.
Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or silentwitness.org.
A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest or indictment.
