Robbers stole cash and an iPhone at gunpoint from two men walking to their car, officials said.

The men were walking to their car in the parking lot of the Blockbuster video store lot in the 800 block of East Colorado Street in Glendale about 11:02 p.m. Friday when they were approached by the two robbers, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

After brandishing a handgun, the men robbed the victims of their cash and the cellphone and fled on foot, Lorenz said.

Another robbery was reported the same day at about 8:42 p.m. on East Cypress Street and South Glendale Avenue, but information on that incident, including whether it was related, was not immediately available.
