Atlanta Police are looking for two men they say tried to rob a group of Georgia Tech students Saturday night.

According to investigators, four students were leaving a house near campus on State Street. That's when the victims told police they were attacked by two men, one of which was armed with a silver handgun.

According to one victim, a suspect pushed the gun into his back and demanded he hand over his wallet and cell phone. When that victim refused, he was pistol-whipped by the suspect. The victim had to go to the hospital and get stitches in his forehead. No one else was injured in the attack. According to police, both suspects fled the scene towards the intersection of 14th Street and State Street.

The suspects are described by authorities as being two black males likely in their twenties. One was wearing a Chicago Bulls hat, but beyond that investigators don't have much to go on. Given that the victims were all Georgia Tech students and the incident happened just a few blocks from campus, university officials sent out a campus safety alert to students.

If you have any information, you're asked to call the Atlanta Police Department.
