Police are looking for two men who were caught on camera last month robbing a Strawberry Mansion dollar store and shooting the security guard.

Investigators said two masked gunmen on April 29 entered the Dollar General at 2815 Ridge Ave. around 9:45 p.m..

One of the suspects forced the store manager to open the safe at gunpoint as the other man confronted the security guard, shooting him in the hand.

A man can be seen on tape rifling through a safe, taking stacks of bills.

Both suspects fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of  cash.

They were last seen running south on the 1800 block of North Newkirk Street.

One of the men lifted his mask as he left the store and his face was captured on tape.

He is described as a five-foot-six-inch tall black male with a light complexion and was last seen wearing a light-colored jacket with a tan hood.

The second man, who’s accused of shooting the security guard, is described as a six-foot-one-inch tall black male between the ages of 21 and 24 with a thin build and a dark complexion. He was last seen wearing a back and gray striped jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911, to contact the Central Detectives Division at 215-686-309 or 3094, or to submit an anonymous tip by dialing 215-686-TIPS (8477), texting PPD TIP (773847), emailing tips@phillypolice.com or by filling out this online form.
