Cops seek robbers of Kensington sporting goods store

Cops are looking for two men who they say held up a sporting goods store in Kensington Monday afternoon and fled with cash from the register.

Police said the men, at least one armed with a semiautomatic handgun, burst into Olympia Sports on Kensington Avenue just south of Allegheny and took an unknown amount of cash out of a register. No employees were injured in the holdup.

Both suspects are described as black men in their early 20s, one of whom wore a short-sleeve black shirt, the other of whom wore a full-length blue cleaning suit. Both were last seen headed eastbound on Lippincott Street.

No arrests had been made around 4:30 p.m. Monday.
