    Police are searching for two men accused of breaking into an insurance office last month and wrestling a female employee to the ground during the robbery.

    According to the San Diego Police Department, the incident happened on Mar. 28 at Progressive San Diego located at 2110 Hancock Street, Suite #300.

    At around 8:45 a.m., two men forced their way into the business and pointed guns at an employee, pushing her up against a wall while demanding the company safe.

    Investigators said the men then wrestled the woman to the ground before dragging her to a back room.

    The suspects then stole some of the victim’s personal property and fled the scene.

    The men were captured on surveillance footage pushing open doors and making their way through the business. Those images were made public by police on Wednesday.

    The men remain at large, but investigators are hoping the images and video clips will bring forth new information on the suspects.

    According to police, the first suspect is described as a Black man between 22 and 30 years old, approximately 5-foot-11 to 6 feet tall, weighing 275 pounds or more. He wore a black beanie cap with a white logo on the left front, a white shirt, a long-sleeve, skin tight sweater, black gloves, black jeans and black and white tennis shoes during the robbery.

    He also may have had a black nylon stocking or sock covering his head and was wearing a gold or silver watch on his left wrist. He was armed with a black pistol.

    The second suspect is described by police as a Pacific Islander male between 22 and 30 years old, 5-foot-9 to 5-foot-10. He weighed 275 pounds or less. That suspect wore a black nylon stocking covering his head, a dark-colored baseball cap, black hoodie, white T-shirt, black gloves, blue jeans and black shoes.

    He was carrying a dark-colored backpack and was also armed with a black pistol, police said.

    The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on this robbery or the identity or whereabouts of the suspects should contact the SDPD Robbery Unit at (619) 531-2299 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
