Police Wednesday circulated images of two men wanted for committing an armed robbery at a Van Nuys convenience store.

The suspects entered the store in the 12900 block of Victory Boulevard about 3:45 a.m. on May 26 and one of them, who was armed with a handgun and had his face covered with his shirt, forced the clerk to open the cash register, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

“The suspects took the cash register’s money drawer, lottery tickets, and fled the location,” according to an LAPD statement.

Images of the men were captured on the store’s video surveillance system.

One is black or Hispanic, between 20 and 30 years old, 6 feet 2 inches tall and 180-200 pounds. He had his face covered with his white T-shirt and was wearing a gray baseball cap with a black bill and a “W” on the front, a dark hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and dark shoes.

The other is Hispanic, 25-30 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 170-190 pounds. He was wearing a gray baseball cap with a red bill and a “W” logo on it, a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and tan work boots, along with an orange reflective traffic vest.

Anyone with information about the suspects was urged to call the LAPD’s Van Nuys Station at (818) 374-0081 to speak with Detective Cheun.

After-hours or weekend calls should be directed to (877) LAPD-24-7 and anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
