The second victim said the unknown men fled the apartment when they saw the victim.

The suspects were picked up by a woman driving what appeared to be a late 90s Dodge Dakota pick-up truck that was black on top and gray on bottom.

The vehicle was reported last seen in the area of South Brundidge Street and University Avenue.

The victims got a good look at one of the suspects and were able to provide police with a detailed description of a 6-foot tall black male who weighed about 250 pounds. Victims said the man had scruffy facial hair, a low haircut and a large tattoo with numbers around it on his right shoulder. Both males were wearing khaki pants and one had on a black shirt.

Police said neither victim was injured during the two crimes.

The Troy Police Department is asking for anybody with information concerning this crime to call 566-0500, or the secret witness line at 566-5555 or CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP. Witnesses need not give their name.
