ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Police are investigating a robbery that occurred on a MetroLink train at 4300 North Hanley Road Sunday afternoon.

Around 1:30 p.m., two male suspects approached a 14-year-old boy while he was riding the train and demanded his bag. When the boy refused to hand it over, the suspects began to assault him.

A group of individuals tried to intervene when one of the suspects displayed a firearm and pointed it at them. Officers then began a pursuit of the suspects into a nearby wooded area where they made their escape.

The suspects got away with the teenager's bag and cell phone.

The first suspect, who was armed, is described as a short black man in his teens. He was reportedly wearing a white shirt and navy blue pants at the time of the incident.

The second suspect is also described as a black man in his teens. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black shorts at the time of the incident.

Police released surveillance video of the suspects on Monday.

Anyone with information regarding the incident should contact the St. Louis County Police Department at 636-529-8210 or CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS(8477)
