A woman was robbed at gunpoint by two men as she was leaving a medical marijuana dispensary Monday night.

Police say as the 55-year-old woman left the business on the 2300 block of E. Bijou St., a man came out of a white mini-van, pointed a gun at her and demanded her purse. The suspect struggled to get the woman's purse, at which point a second suspect from the mini-van came out and also pointed a gun at the woman. The suspects eventually stole the purse and drove away.

One suspect is described as a black man with a goatee. He is between the ages of 25-30 and is about 5'8" tall.

The second suspect is also described as a black man between the ages of 20-30. He is about 5'6" tall.

A third suspect, the driver of the mini-van, was only described as a black man.

The mini-van is an older model. It has a plastic covering on the rear window. The front, passenger door was described as "rusty and beat up."
