Police are looking for two suspects following an alleged home invasion-style robbery west of downtown.

Officers were called to a home on Upper Avenue at around 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

According to police, the adult residents were home when two men entered under the guise that they had a mutual friend. One of the suspects was armed with a gun and demanded money, police said.

When they weren’t able to get any cash, they fled the scene, officers said.

The second is described as a Caucasian man, between five feet four inches and five feet six inches and is also believed to be around 18 years old. He’s described as having a thin build, longer dark brown straight hair almost over his ears and is clean shaven.
