The men attempted to pull a necklace off the victim. When the victim resisted, they struck him on his head with the butt of handgun, causing him to fall down. The victim continued to try to fight the suspects off, but they kicked him and eventually stole the necklace.

The two suspects left in what was described as a 2-door older model SUV "similar to a Ford Bronco."

On Sunday Nov. 4, an unknown suspect shot three times at a red Pontiac that was driving north on Cypress Ave. and had two adult males riding in it. The incident occurred at about 8:30 p.m.
