Pittsburgh police asked for help today identifying two male suspects in the June 10 robbery of a woman in Squirrel Hill.

According to a press release, a man armed with a knife robbed a woman in the 5800 block of Hobart Street just before 1:50 p.m. that day.

The woman was getting into her parked car when a "white male wearing a white tee shirt with dirty blonde hair" grabbed her purse from her, while threatening her with a knife, according to the release.

After the woman let go of her bag, the robber crossed the street and disappeared between nearby houses, police said.

Surveillance video taken in an East Liberty Home Depot shows two male suspects who used credit cards stolen from the woman's purse soon after the robbery.

Police ask that anyone who knows the identity or the whereabouts of the two pictured suspects contact Zone 4 plainclothes detectives at 412-422-6520.

Callers may choose to remain anonymous.
