The videos show three masked men entering the Lucky Food Corner store, at 2101 S. 22nd St., about 4:15 p.m. March 16. Two of the suspects are seen carrying handguns, while the third masked man talks on a cell phone throughout the robbery.
Police say the gunmen forced several store employees into a back room, where the victims were robbed of an iPhone, an iPad and a wallet. The suspects also emptied the Girard Estates store's cash register.
Police described one gunman as a black male about 30 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and of medium build. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black mask and black gloves.
The second gunman is described as a black male, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and thin. He was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, a black mask and black gloves.
The phone-wielding suspect is described as a black male, about 23 years old and thin. He was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, a black mask and black gloves, and is also believed to have been armed with a handgun, police said.
