While inside, they went directly to the first display, where authorities said one of the men cut the security wires to a Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ and a Samsung Galaxy Tab E.

The man then asked several times where the iPhones were and police said he threatened to use physical violence if the store clerk did not comply.

During the robbery, the second man was walking around the store on his cell phone, police added.

Both men then ran from the scene in a northbound direction through the parking lot, officers said. Nobody was injured.
