Lt. Tommy Garcia said authorities have yet to arrest either of the two robbery suspects who allegedly wielded batons late Friday night at a man delivering medical marijuana to a home.

The victim told police the robbers, dressed in black with masks over their faces, scared him into dropping a bag containing an unspecified amount of marijuana and money. The suspects took the bag and fled.

"It just sounds so unique and bizarre," Lt. Alan Henley said Monday. "We haven't had any similar incidents."
