JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Police say two men reported being robbed at gunpoint Sunday evening in the laundry room at Cedar Heights.

The two victims told officers they were in the laundry room when two juveniles walked in.

The men described the two suspects to police but did not know who they were.

One suspect was a white boy described as being around 4’ 6” tall with brown hair and a buzz cut.

The other suspect was a black boy described as about 5’ 8” tall. The victim said he had a short twist in his hair and it was short on the sides.

One suspect reportedly pulled out a small, black pistol and pointed it at the men.

One victim gave the boys his cell phone but was able to get his sim card out.

The two boys then ran north on Marshall Street, according to the report.

Police could not find the suspects.

If you have any information about this robbery, contact Crimestoppers at 935-7867 (STOP).
