El Dorado police are investigating an incident in which three males reported that they were robbed at gunpoint while attempting to purchase a pair of jeans at a local residence over the weekend.

The incident was reported on March 17.

The trio told police they had gone to a residence in the 700 block of South Murphy Avenue to purchase a pair of jeans and upon arrival, three other males ordered them out of their vehicle.

Shortly after the group began talking about the jeans, the victims said the suspects pulled guns on them and demanded "money from their pockets."

One of the victims said two of the suspects took $1,200 cash from his pocket.

Another victim said the third suspect held two Glock handguns with automatic switches attached, struck him in the nose and issued a terroristic threat.

The victim reportedly had a small abrasion on his nose.

A second suspect also carried a Glock handgun with high-capacity magazines and the other had a handgun, the victims told police.

They said they immediately fled the scene and headed to EPD headquarters to report the incident.
