Officers responded at approximately 4 p.m. on Friday to the Pupuseria Luisa food truck located in the 6500 block of New Hampshire Ave. for a report of an armed robbery that occurred earlier, acting spokesperson Ron Hardy said in an emailed community advisory.

Both suspects fled the scene on foot southbound on New Hampshire Avenue.
One suspect was described as a tall and thin Hispanic male wearing a black face mask and a red jacket. The second suspect was described as a short, heavy-set, Hispanic male wearing a black face mask and a black jacket.
