The transaction occurred inside the victim’s vehicle with the black male suspect pulling a handgun on the victim. An additional black male approached the victim on the driver’s side of his vehicle and also pointed a handgun at the victim. The suspects removed money, jewelry and cellphone from the victim. The complainant was able to recover his jewelry and cellphone from the suspects by asking for it back. During the investigation the victim was not very forthcoming with information about the incident. In addition, during the investigation officers could smell the distinct odor of marijuana in the victim's residence.  After completing the initial investigation, officers attempted to investigate the suspicious odor.  At this time, due to other priority calls, a search warrant could not be obtained.  An offense report was completed and an investigation continues.
