Towson University police were searching for two men who robbed students at gunpoint in their dorm room Monday afternoon.

According to a campus crime alert, police said two students were in their dorm room in Glen Tower B, a co-ed residence hall, about 3:30 p.m. when they responded to a knock at the door and two men forced their way inside. During the incident, one of the victims was struck with a metal crow bar and suffered a minor injury in the forehead.

Police said "personal property and other items of value" were taken during the robbery.

The suspects were described as black males, one of whom had a silver, semi-automatic handgun and wore a mask and hooded sweatshirt. The other suspect had a "skinny face," thin beard and goatee, and was wearing a dark baseball hat with a red brim.

Anyone with information was asked to call Towson University police at 410-704-2133.
