Two gunmen tied up employees at a T-Mobile store on Kings Highway Friday afternoon in a brazen robbery of cash and phones from the busy store, police said.

The gunman, described only as two black men by cops at this time, entered the T-Mobile store at 5002 Kings Highway at about 1:10 p.m. and demanded cash and phones. Two employees were said to be in the store at the time and both were tied up with unknown binding, police said. No customers were in the store at the time.

The gunmen fled with an unknown quantity of cash and phones in an unknown direction.

Detectives from the 63rd Precinct detective unit were on scene questioning the victims. None of the victims would comment for this story.

The same gunmen may be responsible for other phone store robberies in Brooklyn. Police are collecting video taken from the store for distribution and will release it soon.
