Colorado Springs Police are searching for two men who they say stole cell phones from an electronics store on N. Academy after showing the clerk a gun. According to police, just before 7:00pm on Tuesday, a man asked to see a cell phone locked inside a sales case at Entertainmart. When the sales associate handed the phone to the man, he lifted his hoodie to reveal a gun in his waistband. After demanding two more phones from the clerk, he ran from the store. Store surveillance video shows the suspect running to a bluish SUV or minivan with a luggage rack on the top.
The suspect is a white male, 20-30 years old, with blond hair and blue eyes. He was wearing an orange and blue baseball cap, blue hoodie, black pants, and white shoes. He was armed with a silver semi-automatic handgun with a black handle.
The second suspect, who police believe was driving the vehicle, entered the store with the first suspect earlier. He is described as a Hispanic man, 20-30 years old, with a ponytail or a long tail in the back of his hair. He was wearing a white scarf, gray hooded jacket, black shirt, blue jeans, and black and white basketball shoes.
If you recognize either of the men in the photo, you are asked to call CSPD.
