A fourth suspect is now being sought in connection to the armed robbery of a 60th Street cell phone store two weeks ago.
Cops put out photos and video of the first three suspects just two days after the July 30 robbery of JJ Wireless, a cell phone store at 810 60th Street. Video captured three suspects entering the store. One assaults the store’s clerk, pinning him to the ground. While another suspect helps subdue the clerk, the third suspect steps over the victim to grab a safe behind the counter.
While struggling with the safe, what appears to be a black handgun tucked into the suspect’s waistband is revealed.
The crew made off with approximately $30,000. The clerk was not seriously injured.
After two weeks of reviewing security footage from surrounding areas, a fourth suspect has been identified. The latest suspect, pictured above, is described as a black male in his 20s, and approximately 5’7″ to 6’0″ tall.
Police have also identified two vehicles connected to the robbery, which they say the suspects fled in: two Ford Ecoline vans, one black, one white, pictured below.
The three original suspects are still being sought. Below are photos of each, followed by descriptions from the police department:
A male black in his 20s, 6’00″-6’04″ in height, with a slim build and a cornrows hair style wearing a gray sweatshirt.
A male black in his 20s, 5’07″-5’10″ in height, with a slim build wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.
A male black in his 20s, 5’07″-6’00″ in height, with a medium build wearing a red sweatshirt. The suspect had a black firearm in his waistband.
