The victim, a 24-year-old man, was sleeping in his vehicle when he was approached by two men. One of the suspects brandished a gun and demanded property from the victim. After the robbery, the suspects fled the area on foot.  The suspects were described as black and in their early 20s.  One of the suspects was about 6 feet tall and weighed 180 to 200 pounds.  He had a high-top style haircut and was wearing a gray shirt and dark pants.  The other suspect was 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed 180 to 200 pounds.  He had a short Afro hairstyle and was wearing a white shirt and dark pants.
