The first suspect is described as a black male with a chipped front tooth. He was wearing a black baseball cap, black jacket, blue jeans, black gloves, brown boots and a police-type badge.

Police say the second suspect is a black male with a beard, who was wearing a black/red baseball cap, dark jacket, dark jeans and black boots.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
