Police said the first suspect was wearing a black mask, black baseball cap, a blue hooded jacket, black pants and black gloves and shoes.
The second suspect was described as wearing sunglasses, a black balaclava mask, a grey hoodie, dark ripped jeans and brown runners with white soles.
Police are also investigating an earlier incident that happened at about 3:30 a.m. on Nov. 29 in a store in the 3900 block of 17 Avenue S.E.
Investigators said in that case, a masked man entered the store and pulled out a gun, demanding money from the register.
The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
That suspect is described as about 35 to 40 years old, approximately 6’ tall with a heavy build. Police said he was wearing a mask, a black hoodie, black pants and black runners with white soles.
