(KMOV) -- Police are searching for two suspects they say stole money from a woman who let them inside her home for a glass of water in University City, Mo. early Thursday.

According to police, the suspects rang the doorbell of a home in the 6800 block of Roberts Ave. around 1:30 a.m.

Police say a woman answered the door and the suspects asked for some water.

Authorities say after the woman walked into the kitchen to get them a glass, the suspects stole a small amount of cash and fled the scene.

The victim described the suspects as two black men in their 20s. She told police one of them had dreadlocks.

The investigation is ongoing.
