PHOENIX -

A group of men accused of robbing a Phoenix smoke shop are still on the loose and police are asking for the public's help to track them down.

On May 17 at approximately 11:43 a.m., two of the suspects entered the business near 32nd Street and Thomas Road, asking to see a phone.

An employee handed the phone to the first suspect, who made a call.  That's when the third suspect entered the store and took the phone away.

The employee attempted to get the phone back, but the third suspect pulled out a gun from his waistband and punched the victim.

The second suspect also pulled out a gun and pointed it at the employee.

According to police, the third suspect then handed his gun to the third suspect and tried to get the employee to fight him.

The victim didn't fight back and the suspects fled the scene, possibly in a blue Dodge Charger.

Police say the three suspects are described as Hispanic males.
