A pattern of armed robberies is targeting businesses and their owners in Philadelphia.

Police say they are armed and dangerous.

"When these situations occur, I mean they're just horrifying for people, and we in law enforcement we feel that we want to get these people off the streets," said Philadelphia Police Lt. John Walker. "Because when you talk to these victims, and there's over 25 victims here, who can't just sleep at night because of what happened here."

Officials said they identified the pair after a tip to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
