NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Newark Police are looking for two men who robbed a cellphone store at gunpoint.

It happened about 9:53 a.m. Tuesday at the Verizon Wireless Store in the Suburban Plaza Shopping Center. Police say two men, one armed with a handgun, entered the store and knocked one employee off a stool.

The robbers forced that employee into a closet and demanded that a second employee give them cellphones.

The employee gave the men an undisclosed number of phones and forced him into the closet.

The robbers then ran away.
