Philadelphia police are looking for two gunmen who were caught on camera Monday night stealing $10 and cigarettes from an Ogontz 7-Eleven.

Investigators said two unknown men shortly before 11 p.m. entered the 7-Eleven located at 1830 Stenton Ave.

Once inside, both men allegedly pulled out handguns, pointed them at an employee and tossed a bag on the counter, shouting “put the money in the bag.”

Police said the employee opened the cash register and placed inside the bag $10 in $1 bills.

The men then allegedly demanded cigarettes, forcing the employee to put numerous packs inside the bag.

Authorities said the men then fled east on Stenton Avenue.

One suspect is described as a 5-foot-7-inch tall black male in his early to mid 20s with a scruffy beard.

He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and a black and white argyle sweater.

The second suspect is described as a 5-foot-5-inch tall light-complected male in his early to mid 20s with a beard.

He was last seen wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt, a red-billed baseball cap, dark-colored jeans and black sneakers.

Anyone with information on the suspects or crime is asked to contact the Northwest Detectives Division at 215-686-3353 or 3354
