Armed robbery victims say suspects took selfies after crime

Glendale, AZ -- Victims of an armed robbery in Glendale hope the selfies the suspects took after the crime lead to their arrest.

According to a police report, the three men wearing masks ordered those inside the Jordan Market, near 64th Avenue and Glendale Avenue, to the back of the store and forced the victims to lie face down on the ground on Thursday, April 7.

The suspects took the victims' cash, jewelry, cell phones and car keys. A 2011 Chevrolet Impala was possibly stolen as well.

Sahar Ibrahim is the owner of Jordan Market and said she was roughed up by the suspects. Her husband, Salam, said she was touched inappropriately.

Sahar said she is selling the store and she went there to meet a potential buyer. Minutes after she arrived, that's when the armed suspects came in. They believe they may have been set up.

Her husband said that he has an app on his phone that downloads all new pictures and video to his Google account when connected to WiFi. Salam said a couple of the suspects have taken pictures of themselves with the money and those pictures were then automatically uploaded to his account.

"It could happen to you, it could happen to anyone," Salam said. "When you touch a lady, you beat her up, you come with a gun, you take a selfie with the money and go eat pizza after you dropped somebody, you don't have no heart."

He shared the pictures with police and us, hoping somebody will recognize them.

"I wish someone would see those pictures and call Glendale police," Salam said.

According to the police report, one victim described the suspects as black men around 6'2" to 6'3", 170 to 180 pounds with thin builds. One of the suspects reportedly lifted his mask as he was leaving. One of the victims described him as thin, between 20 and 24 years old with no facial hair and was wearing a gold shirt and black jeans. The suspect also allegedly had a short, "afro-type" haircut.

If you have any information, call Glendale police.
