The two suspects were caught on surveillance video robbing a man and woman in the middle of the day in Santa Monica, police said Wednesday.
The victim told officers the men had been at the beach at about 2 a.m. when he said he noticed two men wearing dark clothing, a white hat and black gloves walk up to him, the Santa Monica Police Department said in a news release.
He then heard a voice yelling and saw one of the suspects get on top of him, and then the other suspect grab his waistband.
The victims told police they were not robbed and were at the water’s edge, near the pier, for about two minutes.
The suspects ran off, and a witness saw them leaving.
The two suspects are in their early 20s, both Hispanic, and were wearing black shirts, a gray hoodie, blue jeans and sneakers.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Santa Angeles Police Department at (310) 646-3115.
