BLOOMINGTON — A Bloomington cellphone store was robbed at gunpoint Friday night, police said. No one was injured.

Officers were called about 7:30 p.m. to Boost Mobile, 603 S. Center St., just south of downtown Bloomington.

An employee described the robbers as three men wearing masks and said two of them displayed guns.

An undisclosed number of phones were taken from the store and the suspects fled in an unknown vehicle, police said Saturday.

No injuries were reported. Further details, including descriptions of the suspects, were not available Saturday.

This was the third armed robbery reported in Bloomington in the last month and the eighth in the Twin Cities this year.

In the two most recent business robberies, which involved Six Points Food and Liquor and Subway, two suspects were reported. Friday’s was the first to involve three people.

Bloomington police have not indicated the robberies were connected, but after Six Points was robbed Monday, Public Affairs Officer John Fermon said the department is considering all possibilities in the investigations.
