Police say that the victim, 35-year-old Briana Pennell, approached an officer and reported that she had just been pistol whipped and robbed inside of her apartment on Ellsworth Avenue.
The victim stated that her friend had just left for the pharmacy when two men with guns entered her apartment, before one of them struck her on the head and pushed her to the floor. They then allegedly stole $8,000 that she kept tucked inside of her pants.
Pennell told police that the suspects then fled towards Elm Street in a silver or gray SUV.
Police describe the first suspect as a light complexioned black man, who is about 6 feet tall and weighs 230 lbs. He also had a scruffy beard and was wearing a black ski mask on top of his head, leaving his face uncovered.
The other man was described as a black man who was wearing a ski mask over his face.
According to police, Pennell had five outstanding warrants for violation of probation so she was also arrested.
