Two Pokemon Go players were robbed at gunpoint early Thursday morning near an Elk Grove Park.

The two victims were sitting inside a parked vehicle at Karamanos Park playing Pokémon GO when they were confronted by two unknown men. One of the suspects, who was armed with a gun, brandished the weapon at the victims and demanded their property.

The victims complied with the demands and gave the suspects their personal property. The suspects fled the location on foot in an unknown direction.

The first suspect was described as a Hispanic male adult, 6’0”, 140 lbs., wearing a gray/tan jacket and jeans and the other one was described as a Hispanic male adult 5’10”, 170 lbs., wearing a red shirt and black shorts.

Responding officers were unable to locate the suspects and victims were not injured.
