Sacramento police are seeking the public’s help in identifying two young men who attempted to rob a south Sacramento resident in front of his home last week.
About 5:10 p.m. Oct. 12, a man was approached by two men in front of his home near Rancho Campo Court. One of the men had a firearm and confronted the victim while the second man tried to open the locked door to the residence, according to a Police Department news release. The two men left without taking anything and fled in a nearby vehicle.
Police later that day released surveillance photos of the two men. One is described as African American, 18 to 20 years old, and 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a gray hoodie and black pants.
The second man also is described as African American, 18 to 20 years old and 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie and red shirt, with blue and red plaid pajama-style pants and black shoes.
The vehicle was described as a dark gray early 2000s Mazda 3 sedan.
