Colorado Springs police were on the lookout for two men who threatened another man at gunpoint outside his home in southeast Colorado Springs Friday evening.

The victim, a 39-year-old man, was getting out of his car at about 7:45 p.m. in the 1000 block of Mazatlan Circle, off Fountain Boulevard, when two men approached him, aimed a gun at him and and told him to lie on the ground. One of the robbers picked his pockets, taking his wallet and his cell phone, and told the victim not to look at them or they would kill him, police said.

The two men fled on foot and the victim called police, but they were unable to locate the robbers after a thorough search of the area.

Anyone with information can call police at 444-7000.
