RALEIGH, N.C. -

Raleigh police are asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects in a Friday morning armed robbery at Raleigh Metal Recycling.

Police said a man arrived at Raleigh Metal Recycling, located in at 2310 Garner Road, around 5 a.m. to open the business. He was approached by two suspects, one armed with a handgun.

The robbery suspects forced the victim in an office to rob to business, police said.

The suspects did not obtain any property from the business but did manage to take cash, credit cards, a cell phone and other items from the victim, police said.

Police described one suspect as a male, standing 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing around 180 pounds.

The second suspect was described by police as standing around 5 feet 9 inches tall with a stockier build than the first suspect.

Both suspects were wearing a light-colored jacket with horizontal yellow stripes on the front and back and vertical yellow stripes on the sleeves.

Raleigh police said both had long braided hair or wore a long, braided wig.

Anyone with information that might assist the investigation of the case should call Raleigh CrimeStoppers at (919) 834-HELP or visit Raleigh CrimeStoppers for text and email reporting options. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that help solve cases.
