After the two exited the vehicle, four young men approached them from behind. One of the suspects was armed with a handgun.

The suspects told the two victims to “give us all your shit,” and the two victims complied, surrendering wallet, purse, jewelry, I-phones and luggage.

The suspects then got into two dark colored SUVs and fled southbound on 12th Street NE.

The two victims were not physically injured.
