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.

Two men armed with a handgun on Dec. 26 entered the Cricket phone store at 1390 Jefferson Ave. The face of the crook holding the gun is partially obscured by a mask, but his accomplice’s face is fully visible in the surveillance video.

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.

Anyone with information on the identities of the robbers is asked to contact the district detective bureau at 851-4019. All information will be kept confidential.
