PHOENIX – Police are asking for the public's help in locating four suspects involved in an armed robbery at a Burger King restaurant in Phoenix last month.

The four males entered the restaurant at 40th Street and Broadway Road at approximately 11 p.m. on Aug. 16. Police said their faces were completely covered.

Three of the suspects were armed with handguns and one suspect had a long rifle, according to Phoenix police Sgt. Darren Burch, Silent Witness coordinator.

Burch said the suspects ordered the employees to the back of the business where they removed money from the safe and took the employees' cellphones.

The suspects then fled the restaurant in an unknown direction.

Police have released surveillance video and photos in the hopes that someone will be able to help identify the suspects.

Anyone with information 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 the arrest and/or indictment of the suspects.
