The second suspect then also entered the room. The victim told police one of the men displayed what appeared to be a small silver handgun. 

The men allegedly stole personal effects from the room, including the victim's cell phone, a handbag and barber style clippers. No one was injured in the incident.  

The two were observed leaving the scene in a small silver SUV eastbound on Central Avenue. The vehicle was described as having a tire with a hard cover mounted on the rear of the vehicle. 

The first suspect is described as 5'10' with facial hair on his chin. He was wearing a red baseball hat, tan vest, white and red camouflage pants, and red and white Nike sneakers.

The second suspect is described as 5'7" to 5'10", 170 pounds, and clean shaven. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and black Nike sneakers.
