State College Police responded to a report of a robbery at gunpoint around 7:30 p.m. on Monday. 

Four males who resided at a residence at 820 W. College Ave. told police that two black males had entered their apartment and robbed them at gunpoint. The black males then tied the four males up and fled the apartment, police said. 

Property taken from the scene of the robbery was discarded in the area of Westerly Parkway and South Sparks Street, and additional property was found in the 1200 block of South Atherton Street shortly after the incident occurred, police said.

The black males, police said, wore dark clothing and masks and both displayed handguns. One of the males was described as approximately 6 feet tall with a stocky build, and the other was described as approximately 5-feet-7 inches tall.

A possible third suspect was waiting outside the apartment in a car, police said via a press release. 

The State College Police are requesting anyone with information about the incident to call (814) 234-7150 or submit an anonymous tip online.
