Two men — one carrying a semi-automatic assault rifle — stormed into a Pembroke Park cellphone store Thursday and left with three cash drawers, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

The incident, which was captured on store security surveillance video, happened at about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at Metro PCS, 3934 Pembroke Road.

Two men, one carrying a semi-automatic assault rifle, stormed into a Pembroke Park cell phone store Thursday and left with three cash drawers, according to BSO.

"Don't move, don't move," one man screamed as he pushed open the glass door and pointed the rifle at an employee. "Open the register."

According to BSO, three men in a gray or dark-colored 2010 to 2014 Nissan Maxima pulled up to the store and parked.

One man stayed in the car, while the others came into the store with their heads covered.

There were three employees and four customers inside, including a baby.

Detectives are looking for a man who is about 6 feet tall with a thin build. A black t-shirt covered his face, and he wore another black t-shirt and light-colored pants. He carried a black semi-automatic assault rifle in his right hand. The second man was about 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a thin build and he wore a black or dark gray shirt with gray pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Theophilus Woulard at 954-321-4553 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
