BERWYN—Police are looking for two men who robbed a Radio Shack store at gunpoint at 10:43 p.m. March 5, according to police reports.

A clerk said the men entered the store at 6905 W. Ogden Ave., and one of them began asking questions about various cell phones. He then asked if one of the phones was in stock, and followed the clerk as she went to check in the stockroom, where he pulled out a small handgun and ordered her to fill a bag with cash and pre-paid cell phones, police said.

He then ordered the clerk to open a caged area where he took cellphones and a laptop computer. Both men then ran out the back door to a waiting car and fled the area, taking 23 phones but forgetting the bag of cash, according to police.
