Coquitlam RCMP are asking for the public's help in identifying two robbery suspects.

Shortly before 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 8 two young men with a firearm robbed the Rogers Wireless store in the strip mall at 341 North Rd. in Coquitlam, leaving with a large number of cell phones.

Investigators believe the men may also be involved in a rash of similar robberies throughout Metro Vancouver.

Both suspects are described as Persian or Southeast Asian men in their early 20s. The first suspect is about 5'8" with a skinny build and a sharp, pointy nose. The second is said to be shorter and heavier, with a round face.

The suspect vehicle is a small blue or green older-model hatchback. It was parked at the far end of the strip mall parking lot during the robbery.

Anyone who was in the area at the time or has information that could help solve the crime is asked to contact Const. Alex Bojic at 604-552-7342 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or online at www.solvecrime.ca.
