Police are looking to arrest and charge two men with armed robbery after they allegedly stole 40 cellphones from a store in Williamsburg, according to police reports in New York.

Police are asking the public for help, and they have released a video of the armed robbery in progress.

Brooklyn Police said that the incident occurred on Thursday, around 8:00 p.m. Two suspects entered the MetroPCS store, which is located at 187 Havemeyer Street.

One of the suspects approached the counter while brandishing a gun, and he demanded the employee to remain still while the other suspect went behind the counter and took about 40 cellphones.

After placing the stolen phones in a large bag, the suspects fled from the scene.
