WIND GAP, Pa. - Police are looking for two male suspects accused of robbing a Verizon Wireless Store in Wind Gap, Pennsylvania Thursday morning.

Officials say two masked men entered the store, located at 1001 S. Broadway, just after 10 a.m. Thursday morning. One of the men displayed a handgun and tied the employee's hands behind his back.

The suspects ordered the employee to give them the combination to the safe where the phones are kept, then ordered the employee into the bathroom, according to police.

The employee then fled to a nearby gas station. He was not injured.

The suspects are described as being 5'8" - 6'2" and wearing ski masks covering their faces. The employee did not notice any vehicles in the parking lot.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact the Slate Belt Regional Police Department at 610-759-8517.
