Hollywood police on Sunday released photographs and surveillance video of two men who robbed a pawn shop last week.

They are asking the public’s help in identifying the two men.

The robbery occurred at 8:40 p.m. Thursday at Value Pawn Shop, 6001 Duval St.

Police said one armed suspect entered the store and held employees and a customer at gunpoint. He then unlocked the door to allow a second suspect into the pawn shop.

Both suspects then left the store through the rear door and jumped into a waiting car with a third suspect behind the wheel.

The amount and value of property taken is undetermined.

The armed suspect was described as a heavy set black male, wearing dark pants, light hooded sweater, and a camouflage cap, backpack, heavy beard.

The second suspect was described as a black male, tall and slim, wearing gray pants, black long sleeve shirt and winter cap.
