PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Two masked men, one of them armed with an assault rifle, stormed into a South Florida cellphone store Wednesday.

The robbery occurred shortly before 1:30 p.m. at the Metro PCS store on Pembroke Road in Pembroke Park.

Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Gina Carter said two men got out of a Nissan Maxima that pulled up in front of the store and ran inside, one of them armed with an assault rifle.
