PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – Silent Witness on Thursday released extremely clear surveillance video of an armed robbery at a Phoenix smoke shop.
The video shows a Hispanic man between 25 and 35 years old pointing a black and silver handgun at the cashier. He had a backpack with him and demanded the employee fill it with cash from the register.
While that was going on, a second suspect, an Asian man also between 25 and 35 years old, appeared to be taking items out of a case near the door.

The second man is about 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a medium build. He was wearing a black shirt, jeans and had on a black mask and sunglasses.
Police say the suspects took cash, cigarettes and e-cigarettes. They also took what appears to be the cashier's cellphone.
