Amarillo, TX - Police are looking for suspects who they say knocked a man off his bike and stole his belongings.

At around 5:00 a.m. Thursday, the victim was riding a bicycle in the 600 block of North Roberts, when he tells police a black SUV with tinted windows approached.

A passenger got out of the vehicle and knocked the victim off his bike before riding away with it.  After that, the victim says the driver pointed a handgun at him and demanded him to climb into the passenger seat.

The victim says they drove through north Amarillo before ending up on Hastings Avenue near Smelter Road.  That's where the victim says the suspect pointed the gun at him again, demanding all of his cash, wallet and cell phone.

After complying, the victim says he was forced out of the car, which never came to a full stop.

Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of these suspects is urged to contact Amarillo Crime Stoppers at 806-374-4400.
