Police are searching for three men who allegedly robbed two convenient stores armed with handguns and a crowbar last month.

According to a Phoenix police spokesperson, the suspects entered the Circle K near Van Buren Street and 19th Avenue around 10:30 p.m. on Jan. 28.

The trio had their guns drawn and ordered employees to give them money and cigarettes, officials said.

Two hours later, the same group is believed to have gone to another Circle K near Van Buren Street and 11th Avenue and robbed the store similarly to the first robbery.

The victims told police two of the men had handguns, while the third was holding a large crowbar. They fled on-foot after both incidents.

They’re described as being either Hispanic or white. See pictures and videos above.
