Peoria police are asking for the public’s help in finding two armed robbers who held up a Safeway Store on Tuesday.

Investigators said surveillance video captured one of the robbers entering the Safeway near Cactus Road and 83rd Avenue shortly before 4 p.m. and approaching the teller window at the U.S. Bank inside the store.

Video also shows the man handing a note to the teller while another robber acted as a lookout, police said. The teller told officers that the note demanded money so the teller complied and then the robbers left.

No injuries were reported

Anyone with information is asked to call the Peoria Police Department.
