Surveillance video released in store robbery; police searching for third suspect

Phoenix Police have released surveillance video that they hope will lead to the capture of an armed robber on the loose.


Police say the guy was wearing house slippers when he and his buddies ran into a neighborhood grocery store armed with a gun.

Surveillance video shows armed robbers storming a neighborhood grocery store, holding the store owner's wife at gunpoint.

Was she scared?

"Yeah, a little bit... the gun, they put it in the head," said Luis Vallejo.

Vallejo chased after the robbers as they ran out of his store carrying his cash register filled with money and checks.

He says his wife is now doing okay.

Phoenix Police say the suspects took off in a stolen car. An officer on patrol saw the suspects speed by and tried to stop them.

They kept going, and suspect Marco Templin told police he tried to jump out of the moving car, but his buddy Hector Munoz shot him saying "you are going to run, you are going to talk."

Munoz and Templin were arrested after the car crashed into some landscaping rocks; the third suspect ran away.

Templin was on crutches as he appeared for his first court hearing. Both he and Munoz are in jail as police search for the third suspect who got away.

Phoenix Police say anyone with information on the third suspect is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
