Phoenix police need help finding two suspects who held two Metro Light Rail passengers at gunpoint while they stole one of the victim's cell phones.
The robbery happened Saturday at around 12:55 a.m. when the eastbound train had stopped at 3800 E. Washington St.
The two suspects stepped off the train, police said. One of them climbed back on again and forcibly removed the cell phone from one of the victim's hands, police said.
The other suspect stood at the doorway and pointed a gun at the two passengers, officers said.
When the second victim refused to give up his cell phone, the suspect punched him in the face, officers said.
Silent Witness is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to arrests and convictions in the case.

The other suspect is described as between 17 to 20 years old. He is 5'6" tall and weighs 120 pounds. He also has a dark "buzzed" haircut.
