BROWNSVILLE -

Police say they're searching for three men they say were allegedly involved in an armed robbery in the Van Dyke Houses last month.

Two of the suspects approached the victim as he was entering his apartment on July 31 and pointed a gun to his head, according to police. 

The victim was forced inside where the suspects allegedly demanded cash and electronics.

Officials say the suspects ran from the scene with more than $400 in cash. 

A third suspect, News 12 was told, acted as a lookout while the other suspects were inside the apartment.

Police say they hope surveillance video can track down the suspects. 

Police describe the first suspect as being 6 feet 1 inch tall and 170 pounds, last seen wearing a red baseball hat.

The second suspect, police say, was a few inches shorter than the first and had an athletic build, last seen wearing a grey hat, grey t-shirt and grey shorts. 

They also say the third suspect was wearing a white t-shirt and black shorts. 

Neighbors say they were disturbed by the robbery.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
