Two thieves stole nine guns and a man's wallet during an armed robbery in Feltonville Wednesday night, police said.

The victim told police that he was robbed after returning from a shooting range around 8:20 p.m.

Two men approached the victim after he parked his car at his home on 2nd Street near Roosevelt Boulevard. One was armed with a gun, and the other was brandishing a knife, said Officer Christine O'Brien, a police spokeswoman.

They robbed the man of a duffel bag that contained nine guns, and a wallet containing an undisclosed amount of cash, said Cpt. Frank Vanore, commanding officer of the 25th Police District.

Police said both men wore ski masks during the armed robbery.

The suspect who was armed with a gun is described as a heavyset white man, who was wearing khaki colored pants.

The knife-wielding suspect is described as a black man, who is about 6 feet 3 inches tall and was wearing all black clothing.

The suspects were last seen running west on Louden Street, police said.
