Police need the public's help identifying two suspects who robbed a 7-11 in Ogontz.
According to investigators, on October 21, 2013, at 10:52 pm, two unknown males entered a 7-11 store located on the 1800 block of Stenton Avenue. They were armed with handguns, and once inside, both males pulled the handguns on an employee and tossed a bag on the counter, demanding money saying, "put the money in the bag".
Police say that once the employee opened the cash register, he placed $10 and $1 dollar bills inside the bag. The suspects then demanded cigarettes, say officers, at which time the employee place numerous packs of cigarettes inside the bag. After taking the cash and cigarettes both suspects fled the area east on Stenton Avenue.
