    Employees at a Coral Springs cellphone store were restrained with zip ties during an armed robbery Thursday night, police said Friday.

    No injuries were reported in the robbery, which occurred about 9:20 p.m. at the T-Mobile store at 1327 N. University Drive. 

    The three robbers -- two men and a woman -- stole about 25 cellphones and some money, police said. They damaged and stole parts of the store’s video-surveillance equipment before getting away, police said.    

    A man and woman posed as customers first, and then the man showed a gun and ordered all employees to the back of the store at gunpoint, police said. The second man entered the store and used the zip ties to restrain the workers, police said.
