Two armed men forced their way into a Columbus apartment and robbed two people early Friday, police said.
Columbus officers were called around 3:15 a.m. about an armed robbery at one of the homes within the Willow Creek Apartment complex on Buena Vista Road.
A 22-year-old man and 19-year-old woman told officers they were sitting in the living room of their friend’s apartment around 2:45 a.m. when the door bell rang. The friend was not home at the time.
The woman asked who it was and a man replied “Kevin,” police records show. When she opened the door, two men with shotguns forced their way into the apartment.

One of the gunmen cursed at them and demanded their belongings. He then started searching their pockets and kitchen cabinets. The other gunmen stood at the front door.
Records show the men stole $5 and two cigarettes from the male victim. Nothing was reported taken from the woman.
No shots were fired and no one was injured.
The two suspects are described as black, between the ages of 18 and 22. One stands at about 5 feet 6 inches tall with gold teeth and dreadlocks. He was wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans. The other is described as skinny, about 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was wearing a black shirt and blue jeans.
