The first suspect is a Caucasian, 25 to 35 years old with a dark complexion, average build and was wearing a black jacket with a fur hood collar, dark jeans, white Nike shoes and carrying a black messenger bag. The second has a lighter complexion and average build wearing a grey hoodie, black jacket with a distinct logo on the back, dark jeans, black and white shoes, and carry a black duffel bag.
