PHILADELPHIA -

Police in Philadelphia are searching for two men who they say robbed a 14-year-old boy and two 13-year-old girls inside of a Chinese take-out restaurant  last month.

The robbery happened just before 8 p.m. at a take-out restaurant on the 400 block of east Wyoming Avenue on January 18.

Police say one of the suspects grabbed a cell phone from one of the victims and then walked up to the other two demanding their phones.

After taking three phones, police say the two men ran out of the store. They were last seen running toward Hurley Street.

Police describe both suspects as black men who were both dressed in dark colored clothing.

If you have any information, you're asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS (8477) or by text at 773847.
