Police are seeking the public’s help to identify two men who robbed a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant at gunpoint on Monday.

Two men entered the Ahwatukee Foothills restaurant, at 4825 E. Warner Road, just before 2 p.m. on Oct. 21, pretending to be customers, said Sgt. Trent Crump of the Phoenix Police Department. One suspect pulled a black handgun on employees and moved them to the back of the store, demanding money.

The suspects demanded that all employees put their cell phones in a trash can. After collecting all cell phones and money, the two men ran out of the back of the restaurant to the back parking lot, Crump said.

The two men are described as Hispanic males, 25 to 35 years old, 5 feet 10 to 6 feet tall, 180 to 200 pounds. They were last seen wearing baseball caps, black sunglasses, back packs and carrying a black handgun. A red pickup truck, extended cab with chrome rims was seen in the area at the time of the robbery, Crump said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Phoenix Police Department’s Violent Crimes Bureau at (602) 262-6141, or if they wish to remain anonymous contact Silent Witness at (480) WITNESS.
