Police are looking for two men they said robbed the T-Mobile store on Riverdale Avenue earlier this week.

Two men walked into the 5670 Riverdale Ave., store, just after 4 p.m., on Tuesday, Dec. 3, with one immediately started cutting display phones from various counter tops, while the other told customers and employees not to move or call anyone, while placing his right hand in his jacket pocket, according to police. 

The duo successfully removed eight cell phones from their display cases, and then just walked out. 

No one was injured.

The first man is described as a dark-skinned male, last seen wearing a black hooded jacket, black sweatpants with the word "Champion" on the left pant leg, with gray sneakers.  The second is a man last seen wearing a black hooded coat, black sweatpants with the Nike logo on the left pant leg, along with black sneakers, and with a black backpack strapped to his chest.
