PHILADELPHIA -

Philadelphia Police are searching for two suspects who investigators believe worked together in the robbery of a Kensington Avenue 7-Eleven last week.

Police say a man walked into the 7-Eleven on the 3900 block of Kensington Avenue last Monday around 5 a.m. and pointed a gun at an employee. At the same time, another man acted as a lookout at the front door.

Surveillance video obtained by police shows the man with the gun jump over the counter. Police say he then forces the employee to open the cash register and then takes approximately $400.

Police describe the first suspect as a black man, 20-25-years of age, 5'9" to 5'10" tall with a black baseball hat with a white brim and the word "SPURS" on it. Police say he had a distinctive dark, gray and black hooded zip-up sweatshirt with a red hood and red pockets on the front.

The second suspect is described as a black man who was seen wearing black jeans, a black jacket and a black hooded sweatshirt.

If you have any information, you're asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS (8477). You can also text a tip to police at 773847.
