Several people were robbed this week by gunmen who interrupted a card game at a Live Oak home, police reported.

Two men held up people who were at a home in the 1100 block of Second Street Wednesday night and stole cash used in the game, according to Live Oak police.

The robbers escaped with about $350.

There were no reports of anyone injured during the robbery.

The suspects were described as black men, between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 150 to 170 pounds, and wearing black clothes and black masks, police reported.

Each of the men was armed, one with two handguns and the other with what may have been an AK-47 assault rifle, according to officers.

Live Oak police have been investigating a series of robberies in which Hispanic residents have been targeted.

This case does not appear to fit that pattern, police reported Friday.

More than 20 of these robberies have been reported since December.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact police at 386-362-7463 or Crime Stoppers at 386-208-8477.
