Jordon said the victim tried to reclaim his stolen property and was met with a firearm pointed in his direction.

The suspects then fled the scene by vehicle, Jordon said.

Detectives met with the victim again Tuesday to get a better description of what happened and possible descriptive information on the robbers.

Police are also reviewing video surveillance in the area to help generate information on the suspects.
