Thieves rob Phoenix Super Pawn store

It was a brazen robbery in broad daylight, and now police need your help getting the suspects off the street.

Three men entered the store wearing masks, and armed with a gun. They held everyone inside the store at gunpoint, including two small children.

The robbery happened on March 17, around 10 in the morning at the Super Pawn at McDowell and 43rd Avenue.

"It was pretty scary, they told us to go on the ground, and they hit me with a gun on the head," said one of the employees.

Police say the suspects told everyone to lay on the ground, and then pointed the gun at the victims including two children; 5 and 12-years-old.

"I'm glad that they weren't crying at the time, but afterwards they let it all out. The mom was on top of them, she grabbed them and then got on top of them to secure them," she said.

Investigators say they forced an employee to open glass cases so they could steal jewelry. The alarm sounded during the robbery, and all the suspects fled in a red GMC van driven by a fourth suspect.

"Hopefully they catch them pretty fast; we don't need them in the streets," said the employee.

Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
