Collinsville po­lice are ask­ing peo­ple to help them iden­tify armed rob­bery sus­pects pic­tured in sur­veil­lance pho­tos re­leased Thurs­day.

The two men pic­tured were wear­ing cloth­ing with some dis­tin­guish­ing fea­tures when they used a gun while rob­bing the All About Eyes store on Tues­day, po­lice say.

The first sus­pect is a black man wear­ing a dark hooded sweat­shirt and black sweat­pants with a green stripe. In sur­veil­lance footage, he is hold­ing a hand­gun when the men walk into the store at 1172 Collinsville Cross­ing in Collinsville on Tues­day. Po­lice say he took cash from the store.

The sec­ond sus­pect, po­lice say, is a black man who was wear­ing a dark­col­ored Nike Elite hooded sweat­shirt, a cam­ou­flage ball cap, and dark-col­ored sweat pants. He car­ried a blue shop­ping bag that he filled with “nu­mer­ous eye­glass frames,” po­lice say.
