Officers found that two men dressed in gray shirts, covering their faces with bandannas, posed as police officers. When the victim did not open the door, they kicked it in. The victim was assaulted, and his wallet was stolen at gunpoint. Soon afterward, the suspects tried to use his stolen credit card at Wal-Mart in Hamburg. A third suspect was present at that time.
