Fort Worth police released this photo of a possibly stolen SUV that was driven by one of the men who tried to hold up a Miller Avenue store on June 18.

Police are looking for two men who attempted to hold up a store on Miller Avenue last month while driving what was possibly a stolen SUV.

The driver of a blue or purple older model SUV, possibly a GMC Yukon or Chevrolet Tahoe, made a purchase at the drive-through window of Miller Grocery, 2200 Miller Ave., at 3:30 a.m. June 18, police said in a news release Wednesday.

He drove off but circled back to the drive-through window and signaled to a second man, who then covered his face with a mask and approached the window with a gun. The clerk closed the window, and the would-be robbers fled, the news release said.

The SUV, which may be stolen, has running boards, is missing center caps and the paint is peeling along the top of the cab. The men tried to sell it for $800 before going to the store, police said.

No other information was released Wednesday.
