Help from the public is being sought in solving two recent robberies in the Northeast District with police releasing videos and photographs of the robbers.

On Dec. 26, two men armed with a handgun entered the Cricket phone store at 1390 Jefferson Ave. In the second incident on Dec. 16, at a deli at 313 Weston Ave., police again said two men were believed responsible for the “strong-armed robbery” of an older man inside the establishment.

Detective Molly Costantino, the lead investigator in both cases, urged anyone with information on the identities of the robbers to contact the district detective bureau at 851-4019. All information will be kept confidential.
