Police hope the public will help them identify two men who robbed a store clerk at knife point Aug. 9 in southwest Fort Worth.

It happened about 10:45 p.m. at the Stop and Save store at the intersection of Wycliff Street and Old Benbrook Road, according to a police news release.

Video surveillance images show the two men jumping over the counter, one of them flashing a large “Buck”-style folding knife that he used to threaten the clerk.

They emptied the cash register and grabbed several packs of cigarettes, according to a police department news release.

“Store surveillance showed that both suspects covered their faces with white shirts that had the eyes cut out,” according to the news release.

The man with the knife was black and about 6-feet-2-inches tall. He had a muscular build and wore a Dallas Mavericks “Howard” jersey.

“On his upper left back area is the letter ‘M’ or ‘N’ tattooed in cursive,” police said. “He also has a large cross tattoo on the outside of the upper left arm. A horizontal tribal ‘arm band’ tattoo can also be seen on the upper right arm. This could be letters as well.”

The other man was white, about 5-feet-10-inches tall, slender build and buzz cut. He wore a blue short-sleeve shirt and knee-length shorts.

“He also has a crescent shaped scar on the upper right side of his head,” police said.

Anyone with information can call robbery detectives at 817-392-4469 or Crime Stoppers at 817-469-8477. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and they may be eligible for a reward.
