GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Police are asking for the public's help to identify and locate two suspects who robbed a Glendale cellphone store at gunpoint Monday afternoon.

The suspects entered the T-Mobile store near 77th Avenue and Bell Road just before 1 p.m. and waited for most of the customers to leave. They then demanded phones, accessories and cash from store employees while pointing handguns at them, according to Glendale police.

The loss is in excess of $15,000.

One suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his late teens or early 20s, over 6 feet tall and very thin. He was wearing a white polo-style shirt with "3" on the right sleeve, blue jeans and a white ball cap. Police said employees described this suspect as having several days' growth of facial hair with a circular design shaved into the cheek areas of that beard. He was also described as very frail or possibly suffering from some sort of ailment. 

The other suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his late teens or early 20s, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall, wearing jeans and a black ball cap.

Police have released surveillance video of the robbery (watch video above).

Detectives believe the suspects may have been involved in other robberies and they are asking for help solving this crime. Call the Glendale Police Department at 623-930-3000 or Silent Witness at 480-Witness with any information about the suspects.
