Police are asking for the public's help in finding three men who robbed a convenience store on Old York Road near 69th Avenue in West Oak Lane last Tuesday, cops said. The three men, two armed with shotguns and one armed with a handgun stormed into the store around 7:15 p.m. and ushered about 4 or 5 employees into a backroom while they robbed the place, cops said.  No one was injured and they fled with over $1000, police said.

Investigators believe that one of the men who was involved in the robbery may have robbed another convenience store on Oct. 30. During that robbery on Somerset Street near 26th, the male, who was armed with a shotgun, stole about $150 around 6:15 that evening.

Police have posted a surveillance video here.

Anyone with any information on either robbery is asked to call Northwest Detectives at 215-686-3353, -54. or the citywide tipline at 215-686-TIPS.
