URBANA -- Police want help identifying suspects who stole a cellphone and subsequently committed a robbery. Saturday, August 3, about 12:30 am, a cellphone was taken off the bar at the Tin Roof Tavern, in the 600-block of North Cunningham.

A short time later, the cellphone was used to order food from a pizza business. A man initially made the call to place the food order and a woman called later to verify the delivery time.

The driver was given an address in the 300-block of East Kerr. Upon arriving, three suspects jumped the driver, forced him to the ground, stole cash, the food and the driver's cellphone.

The three suspects who assaulted the driver are black men who fled in a white SUV after the attack.

One is described as having a heavy build and short afro. He's seen in a surveillance photo from the bar when the cellphone was stolen.

The second photo shows the second man also believed to be involved in stealing the cellphone.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers. You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
