PHOENIX -- Police are asking for the public's help to identify two suspects and a person of interest following an armed robbery at a Circle K in Phoenix.

Around noon on May 27, a female and two males entered the store at 15th Avenue and Indian School Road.

Police said the female asked the clerk if she could use the phone. The clerk handed her the phone and then the two males ordered the victim to raise his hands and not to press any alarm buttons.

The males simulated a weapon by grabbing their pants and the female remained on the phone next to the sales counter, according to police.

The two males stole items from the store, possibly bottles of beer, and fled with the female in an unknown direction.

No vehicle was seen.

One suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 125 pounds and wearing a white jersey with #87 on the sleeve. The other suspect is described as a Hispanic male, wearing a blue shirt and gray pants.

The woman is considered a person of interest. She is described as Hispanic, wearing a blue-and-gray shirt and black pants.

Silent Witness is offering a reward of up to $1,000 in the case. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or silentwitness.org.
