Authorities are asking for help in tracking down two men involved in an armed robbery of a McDonald's last month.

Around 6:20 a.m. on January 17, Phoenix police say two men walked into the McDonald's near 24th Street and Osborn Road.

One went into the back office, where the safe was left open. The second suspect intimidated an employee by pointing to a handgun that was partially sticking out of his pocket, police said.

The suspects were able to get away with the contents of the safe and appeared to have knowledge of where the fast-food restaurant's security cameras were placed, according to Sgt. Jamie Rothschild.

The suspect who robbed the safe is described as a Hispanic man between 25 and 30 years old. He was 5'5" or 5'6" tall and weighed 150-160 pounds, according to a description from the Phoenix Police Department. He has black hair and a mustache, and wore a red-brimmed baseball hat, black hoodie, dark pants and brown boots at the time of the robbery. 

The second suspect is described as a 25- to 30-year-old Hispanic man between 5'8" and 5'9" tall. He also has a mustache and was wearing a black beanie and jacket, dark pants and black shoes with white soles during the robbery.
