Police ask for help to identity suspects who robbed Verizon store

GREENFIELD (WITI) -- Greenfield police are asking for the public's help to identify the suspects who robbed the Verizon store on S. 76th St just north of Edgerton Ave.

The robbery happened Tuesday evening, February 18th. A Greenfield police captain tells FOX6 News a call for a robbery in progress came in around 8:12 p.m.

In less than one minute, one of the suspects assaulted an employee while three other masked men ran inside, stealing money and merchandise.

Security video shows a man holding the door for two female customers when a man with a mask rushes inside and punches the other man in the face.

The two women ran off while three more men, one with a gun, ran into the store.

The suspects then proceeded to steal money and merchandise from the store. As the robbery happened, employees and customers were inside the store.

Police are working to determine what was taken from the store — and are also working on an accurate description of suspects — who fled the store before police arrived on scene.

The employee assaulted inside the store was treated on scene.

If you can help Greenfield police identify any of the suspects in the photos above, you're encouraged to call 414-761-5300 or anonymously to 1-800-78-CRIME (800-782-7463).
