Police are seeking any information that could lead to the arrest of two suspects involved in a Saturday night armed robbery.

According to Austin Police Chief David McKichan, a 23-year-old male called police at about 11:55 p.m. Saturday to report that he had been robbed at gunpoint in the 400 block of Ninth Street Northeast.

The alleged victim said he and a friend were walking in the area when a white four-door vehicle pulled up. Two Hispanic males exited the vehicle and pointed black semi-automatic pistols at them. The men took the victim’s wallet and fled southbound.
