Police are looking for a man who robbed the EntertainMart on Academy just north of Platte in Colorado Springs.

Police say just before 8 Tuesday evening, a man went into the store and asked to see a mobile phone stored inside a sales case.

When an employee handed the phone to the man, the robber demanded two more similar phones as he pulled up his hoodie to show he had a gun inside his waistband.

Once he had the phones, the robber ran from the store.

Surveillance video showed the robber running to a bluish-colored SUV or minivan with a luggage rack on the top of the vehicle. The video also shows the robber entering the store minutes before the robbery with a second man.

The main suspect is described as white, about 20-30 years old, with blond hair and blue eyes. He wearing an orange and blue baseball cap, blue hoodie, black pants and white shoes.

The second suspect is a Hispanic man, also believed to be 20-30 years old, possibly with a ponytail or long tail in the back of his hair. He was reportedly wearing a white scarf, gray hooded jacket, black shirt, blue jeans and black and white colored basketball shoes.

If you have any information that would help investigators, call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP. You don't have to give your name, and you could earn a cash reward.
