PHOENIX -

Two armed robbers remain on the loose more than a month after they held up a clerk at a Phoenix-area service station.

Silent Witness hopes the public can provide new leads into the July 1 holdup at the Shell station at 5402 W. Indian School Rd. 

Both shirtless suspects are described as Hispanic men between the ages of 16 to 18.

One of them is about 5'5" tall and weighs 120 pounds. He was wearing white shorts with a dark stripe on the side and had tattoos on upper right arm and chest. He was armed with a machete. 

The other suspect is also 5'5" tall and weighs 120 pounds. He was wearing black shorts and shoes.

The suspects entered the store and "aggressively cornered the clerk," said Silent Witness Sgt. Derek Elmore.

They moved the clerk to the register and demanded money. The teen armed with the machete motioned as if he was going to strike the victim, Elmore said. 

Both suspects obtained the money and fled on foot. They haven't been seen or heard from since.

Anyone with information about the suspects are asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO. People can also call Silent Witness detectives toll free at 1-800-343-TIPS. Your call will remain anonymous.

Another way to leave a message is to head to the website silentwitness.org.
