The Cedar Rapids Police Department is investigating an armed robbery.

At 5:50 a.m. Tuesday, the victim - a 20-year-old man - met with two subjects in the 4000 block of Wilson Avenue to sell the men $660 worth of electronics. Rather than pay for the items, police said one of the two subjects pulled a gun on the man and fled with the electronics. The man was not hurt in the armed robbery.

The two suspects are described as black men, 16 to 20 years old, 5'10" to 6' tall and with thin builds. They were both wearing hooded sweatshirts, police said.
