Armed robbers stormed a cellphone store in the middle of the day and terrorized the employees and customers. Police believe they could also be responsible for several other holdups.
The robbery happened Tuesday at the T-Mobile store in the 4600 block of Hulen Street in Fort Worth.
Manager Rene Grimes said two men wearing hoodies and red bandanas over their face came in with guns drawn. They demanded money and "the new phones."
The men got away with cash from the register and from an elderly customer. Grimes also threw phones at them to prevent them from hurting any of her employees or customers.
"At that point in time I felt it was my personal responsibility, I'm the store manager. And I could not have imagined if anyone got hurt on my watch. I couldn't have imagined that. That would have been worse than what happened today," she said.
The employees said three other cellphone stores in the area have been robbed since Thursday. Police are looking into the possibility that they are connected.
There is a $5,000 reward in the case. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Fort Worth Police Department.
