Police ask for help in hunt for Tec-9 wielding gunmen

Police are asking for help identifying two suspects who robbed a Southwest Philadelphia corner store in August.

Footage released last week shows three suspects entering the Jaquez Grocery Store on South 62nd Street around noon.

One of the robbers pulls a Tec-9 from his waistband and shoves it in the face of a woman working the counter, while another suspect trains a handgun on two employees.

A third suspect acts as a lookout. The perps forced the victims into the basement, then emptied the cash register of about $7,500 before fleeing.

The Tec-9 wielding suspect is about 5'8", thinly built, in his late twenties and was wearing an orange baseball cap. Another suspect had a full beard and wore a blue Los Angeles Dodgers cap. Tipsters should call Southwest Detectives at 215-686-3183.
