PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities are investigating after two suspects held up a Phoenix pharmacy at knifepoint and stole several boxes of diabetic strips.

Police say the men, who are believed to be in their 20s, entered the CVS on April 18.

One of the men, who was armed with a knife, jumped over the pharmacy counter, took the diabetic strips and put them into a garbage bag.

Police say the second suspect pulled out a knife on a store employee who had attempted to lock the front doors of the store.

Both suspects fled in an unidentified vehicle.

Police are asking anyone with information about the incident or the suspects to contact authorities.
