    Two robbers - one with an AK-47 - stormed a Wynnefield convenience store Saturday.

    Dramatic surveillance video shows two male suspects clad in black hooded jackets, dark pants and tan leather boots calmly walking along snow-covered sidewalks before entering the 59th Street Mini Market brandishing a gold-colored AK-47 type rifle.

    The pair covered their faces with masks and charged into the store located at 2101 N. 59th St. demanding money as one pointed the weapon, which had the stock removed, at the clerk.

    The suspects can be seen attacking customers and rifling through their pockets before fleeing the store on foot.

    They stole an undetermined amount of cash and cigarettes.

    Police are asking for anyone with information related to the suspects or this crime to contact the Southwest Detectives Division at 215-686-3353.
