PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police have released surveillance video in hopes that someone may recognize two armed suspects wanted in a grocery store robbery in the city's Tioga-Nicetown section.
According to police, the two armed men entered the store on the 800 block of W. Venango Street on Wednesday at about 2:25 a.m.
One of the suspects used an ax to break through the security door while the other suspect pointed a gun at an employee.
"One second between life and death," said the clerk, Mohmed Lemine Sidi al Moktar. "They come inside with the gun, 'Where is money? Where is money?'"
Moktar complied and he wasn't physically hurt. The suspects got away with $750 and two cartons of cigarettes, police said.
They were last seen running south on 9th Street.
Anyone who may recognize the suspects or have information about the crime is asked to call police at 215-686-8477.
