PHILADELPHIA -

Police say they are searching for two robbers who took part in a terrifying robbery at a market in Strawberry Mansion.

According to police, a 56-year-old man was closing the gate to his store located on the 2400 block of North 26th Street when he was approached by the duo.

The first male grabbed the victim and forced him back into the store while pointing a handgun. Seconds later, a second male suspect followed them inside.

There, the suspects took an undisclosed amount of cash from the cash register as well as the victim's residence, then ran away in an unknown direction.

The suspect carrying the handgun was described as a black male in his 20s, about 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a thin build, wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt with red design on it, a black mask, brown Timberland boots, dark-colored pants, white gloves.

The other was described by police as a black male, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall, with a thin build, medium complexion, wearing a dark-colored knit hat, a white mask, a dark colored T-shirt, jeans with holes and black gloves.

Philadelphia police posted the video to YouTube. If you see these suspects, cops say not to approach them; contact 911 immediately.
