Police are investigating an armed robbery at a Mesa cellular phone store where officers say one of the men pointed a gun at the clerks and told her she had 10 seconds to hand over the cash or he’d shoot her.

The two men entered the Mega Cellular store at 1437 E. Main St. about 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday with their faces partially covered and went behind the counter and threatened the clerk. The men then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash in a light blue backpack with a cell phone they also stole from the store, according to Mesa police.

The two men fled in a dirty, gold mid-sized SUV.

The owner of the store believes that one of the men had robbed the store on May 5.

One of the suspects is described as a Hispanic male in his early 20s with short black hair, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds.

The other suspect is described as a Hispanic male about 17 years old with a skinny build and was wearing a black T-shirt and shorts.
