PHOENIX - Phoenix police say a string of 16 armed robberies at restaurants on the city's west side may be connected and they're asking for the public's help in finding the suspects.

Sergeant Andy Hill says the robberies began October 18th and three happened Friday night.

Most of the restaurants robbed were Mexican eateries, although two were Church's Fried Chicken stands and one was a Burger King.

Two young men carrying handguns are the suspects, although police say they don't have good descriptions of them. They say they're between 16- and 22-years-old, of medium build and between 5-foot 3-inches-tall and 5-feet 8-inches tall. They wear baggy clothes.

Most of the robberies happened on weekend nights, and all were in Phoenix except one that took place in Glendale.

Anyone with information should call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
