A 19-year-old man told police two armed men robbed him of a black Droid Bionic phone Tuesday near Avalon Apartments, according to a Columbus police report.

The victim told police he was approached in the Cusseta Road apartment complex's parking lot by two men — one armed with a dark revolver, the other with a semi-automatic pistol. The men demanded his phone before fleeing around 7 p.m.

The first suspect was described as a 6-foot-3 skinny black man with a low fade hairstyle. He was last seen wearing a white and blue striped Polo-style shirt.

The second was described as a 5-foot-11 black with a medium build and a short afro.
