Atlanta police are requesting the public’s help in identifying two men they say robbed a Metro PCS store at gunpoint.

An employee was working in the store in the 3800 block of Princeton Lakes Way around 5:45 p.m. on Sept. 29 when he said a man dressed in a black hoodie, white mask, black watch cap, blue jeans and white Nike Air Jordans approached him with a gun and demanded all the iPhones, according to a police report.

When the employee explained to the man that the phones would be useless once he left the store, the suspect demanded the money in the cash register, which was $766, police said. The suspect also wanted a Bosbos wireless speaker, which the employee handed over to the man’s companion. That man had on a black top, black and gray pants and red watch cap, authorities said.

According to police, the suspects left the store after telling the employee they weren’t going to shoot him.

A crime scene technician processed the store for fingerprints, but no additional information has been released.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police. Tipsters can remain anonymous, and be eligible for rewards of up to $2,000, by contacting Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477, texting information to 274637 or visiting the Crime Stoppers website.
