The suspects are described as two Black males, 35 to 45 years old. One suspect is described as being of normal height with a stocky build and short hair.  He was wearing a blue beanie-style cap, a blue long-sleeved shirt, dark pants, white shoes and black gloves. The other suspect is described as having above average height with a thin build.  He was wearing a dark beanie-style cap, gray sweatshirt, blue pants, dark shoes and black gloves.

Anyone with information about this incident or who recognizes the suspects is asked to call LAPD Detective Guevara at 310-444-1523 or 1522.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 213-978-6500 or 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).
