Police are looking for the two men wanted in connection with several brazen robberies at Philadelphia 7-Eleven stores.

The first robbery occurred at 12:01 a.m. at the store located at 58th and Whitby Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia. Police say a man entered the store with a long silver revolver and demanded money. The two store employees, however, were able to run to a secured room and the gunman fled the store with nothing.

The suspect was described as a black male with a dark complexion, standing 6'2 to 6'4, has slight facial hair, a thin to medium build, and is estimated to be between 20 and 30-years-old. He was wearing a dark grey hooded sweat shirt, an orange brimmed baseball cap and dark blue jeans.

At 12:15 a.m. a gunman fitting the same description walked into the 7-Eleven at 4200 Walnut Street. With his gun drawn he went behind the counter, pulled out the drawer from the register and fled. An estimated $2000 was inside the drawer.

Then around 1:35 a.m., two men entered the 7-Eleven located at 7300 Elmwood Avenue. One of the men pointed a gun at the clerk and walked behind the counter, removing both cash drawers from the register along with the clerk's phone. The second suspect grabbed a bunch of scratch off tickets. The gunman then pointed his weapon at a customer and steals the customer's cell phone and car keys. The two then fled with an estimated $325 in cash.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police.
