When he tried to leave, one man pushed him back inside, the other man took out a butcher knife and demanded that the victim withdraw money from his account. The first suspect was described as a 20 year old Cape Verdean male, about 5 foot 9, with short hair. The second suspect was only described as wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and a baseball hat. The victim was not hurt.
