PHOENIX — Silent Witness announced a $1,000 reward on Saturday for anyone who can help them catch two teens accused of robbing victims at gunpoint in Phoenix.

The suspects threatened two victims in a Walmart parking lot near Encanto Boulevard and 75th Avenue, according to Silent Witness.

The two victims were walking to their vehicle on May 21, 2023, when the two suspects demanded their gold chains, police said.

One of the suspects allegedly pulled up his shirt to show he had a black handgun.

He threatened to shoot and one victim gave them his gold chain while the other victim yelled for help, police said.

The suspects allegedly fled on foot and are still at large.
