Both suspects fled out of the rear of the store and ran east through the parking lot towards Newtown Road to a vehicle.

The employee was taken to Abington Hospital. No word on his condition at this time.

This robbery comes two days after suspects shot a worker at this Boost Mobile store in Roxborough before robbing the place.

Police are investigating if it's connected. Investigators say cell phone stores in Bucks, Montgomery County, and Philly have been hit. There have been 16 of these dangerous robberies since November of last year. Police have not said definitively that they’re connected but that they’re very similar. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Warminster Police at 215-672-1000.
