    Philadelphia Police are searching for three armed suspects who robbed a clothing store in Fishtown last week.

    Authorities say three men held up workers at the Tri State Clothing store on 120 W. Girard Ave. around 4:15 p.m. Friday.

    The first suspect pulled out a silver handgun and ordered employees to the rear of the store, where they were bound with zip ties, according to investigators.

    At the same time, his two accomplices took clothing, watches, sunglasses, a cell phone and a Gucci bag from the front of the store, according to officials.

    The men were all wearing plastic latex gloves and communicating through walkie talkies, according to store employees.

    Surveillance video shows one of the suspects, who appeared to be in his early twenties, was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a “Nike” emblem and red basketball shorts.

    The second man looked older, perhaps in his late twenties, according to police. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and red track pants. The third man was heavy set and wearing a white tank top and blue jeans.

    Anyone with information on the holdup or the suspcts' identities is urged to call police
