Investigators are hoping someone recognizes the armed suspects who robbed a grocery store in Philadelphia Richmond section.

It was 2:20 p.m. on December 9, 2013, when cameras captured two hooded men enter the Ariel Grocery located at 2090 Pacific Street.

One of the suspects acted as if he was going to make a purchase when the second suspect approached the counter and pointed his handgun at an employee, demanding money.

The suspect was given cash from the register and then demanded the employees gold engagement and wedding rings.

A customer entered the store and that's when both suspects fled, running south on Amber Street towards Castor Avenue.

The first suspect is described as a black male, 20-25 years-of-age, 5'7", dark complexion, thin build, wearing a black scarf covering his nose and mouth, black Nike hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, tattoo of "AP" on his right hand and armed with a handgun.

The second suspect is described as a black male, 20-25 years-of-age, 5'7", dark complexion, thin build, wearing a red or orange hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and black gloves.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Philadelphia Police at 215-686-TIPS (8477), text a tip to PPD TIP (773847) or through PhillyPolice.com.
