PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Officers are still trying to track down suspects connected to an armed robbery at a Phoenix restaurant last summer.

Just before 2 a.m. on July 25, an armed robbery suspect bolted through the door of Armando's at 3955 E. Thomas Rd. He quickly jumped the counter, officers said.

Two more suspects barreled through the door right behind the gunman. The three suspects forced the workers to the ground in the back of the restaurant and fled out the back door after getting money from the register.

The suspects used clothing to mask their faces but investigators are hoping someone recognizes them anyway. 

All three are between 18 to 25 years old.

One of them was wearing a blue-hooded sweatshirt and dark shorts.

A second suspect wore a red shirt and had a white shirt on his head.

The gunman was wearing a red-hooded sweatshirt and black pants.

Other wanted fugitives:

Police are also looking for 19-year-old Gabriel Ortega. He is wanted for violating probation on attempted child molestation and marijuana charges.

He is described as 5'5" tall and weighing 180 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

There's also a warrant out for 54-year-old Kenneth Draper. He is wanted for violating probation after indecent exposure charges.

He is 5'10" tall and weighs 200 pounds. He has blond hair and blue eyes.

People with information about the fugitives are asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS OR 480-TESTIGO.
