Two people identified as Korean nationals were robbed at gunpoint in the 100 block of Forest Avenue at 10:48 p.m. on July 26.

The two people were approached by two black men in their early 20s, both described as about 5-foot-10 with thin builds, who displayed handguns and demanded their possessions, according to police. The offenders then took a black Zippo lighter from one of the victims before fleeing westbound on foot.

One of the gunmen was described as having a large black afro and wearing a white T-shirt and Khaki shorts. The other wore a white hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

The estimated loss is $30.
