2 suspects sought in robbery at cellphone store

An unknown Hispanic male entered a Metro PCS store located 721 Adams Avenue while a second Hispanic male stood outside guarding the door.

Once inside the store the suspect went behind the counter with his right hand in his pants simulating that he was armed with a weapon.

When the employee, a 22 year-old female, told the suspect he was not allowed behind the counter he demanded the employee to give him the money in the safe while threatening her if she did not meet his demands.

After complying, the suspect placed the money from the cash register inside a bag. Both suspects fled the store and were last seen heading south on the 5300 block of Howland Street.

There were no injuries reported during this incident.
