Have you seen this cell phone store robber?

Police earlier tonight released a surveillance image of a gun-toting man who robbed a North Philly Metro PCS shop with an accomplice on Jan. 20. The thieves -- described as a medium built, 22- to 22-year-old black man with a beard and mustache and 5-foot-9, 21-year-old black man with a black leather jacket -- walked into the store, on 22nd Street near Somerset, at about 5:45 p.m. and started asking about a particular phone, police said.

When an employee gathered paperwork about the phone, the older of the two crooks pulled out a black handgun and ordered the employee to empty out the cash register. Both men fled on foot. Tipsters can call Northwest Detectives at 215-686-3353.
