Lacerations on a 19-year-old victim's face and $129 in stolen equipment were the results after two suspects allegedly beat a teen with a pistol Tuesday, according to a Columbus Police report.

The teen told police he was at a street corner on 23rd Street near 16th Avenue at about 12:15 a.m., when two armed men approached him. The suspects allegedly hit the victim in the head with the weapon, causing cuts above his right eye. They then took $129 worth of unspecified electronics and fled.

Both alleged robbers are described as black men between 18 and 25 years old. One, called "DeQuandre," was clad in green shorts and a blue shirt.

The other man was wearing a white shirt and black shorts. He was described as being about 5-foot-8 and weighing about 160 pounds.
