Phoenix police are looking for two men who stole diabetic strips at knifepoint from a Phoenix CVS.

The men walked into the CVS at 3440 W. Glendale Ave. at about 9:51 p.m. April 18. One of the men jumped over the pharmacy counter, pulled out a knife and took all of the boxes of diabetic strips, putting them in a garbage bag, police said. He then rejoined the other man at the front of the store.

When a store employee attempted to lock the front doors, the second man put a knife to the employee’s neck. Both men then fled in an unidentified vehicle.

The first man was about 25 years old with brown hair and brown eyes. He was described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and about 160 pounds. He wore black pants, black and white shoes, a gray hoodie and a black baseball cap with a red bill and logo, police said.

The second man was about 28 years old with brown eyes and brown hair and a beard. He was described as about 5 feet 7 inches tall and 225 pounds. He wore tan pants, a gray sweatshirt, red shoes and a black baseball hat with a white logo, police said.
