Since April 28, the two suspects have been linked to robberies at four Metro PCS stores and a Boost Mobile location all within southern sections of Dallas.

In most cases, the suspects enter the store and use handguns to hold employees and customers at gunpoint while they steal money and merchandise.

The FBI calls the men aggressive, but says no one has been physically injured during their robberies.

Investigators believe a third person is driving a getaway car identified as a black Nissan Altima SL with a sunroof and possibly paper tags.

The men are known to wear hats, sunglasses and gloves, and both brandish handguns.

The suspects are described as black men around 22-25 years old. One is six-feet, two-inches tall and weighs 190 pounds. He is known to wear a “Born Fly” logo shirt and carry a black backpack.

The other suspect is around five-feet, seven-inches tall and weighs 180 pounds and is usually wearing a blue long sleeved undershirt or brown plaid long sleeved shirt.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Dallas FBI at 972-559-5000 or the North Texas Crime Stoppers tip line at 877-373-TIPS (8477).
