Tempe police are looking for two men who reportedly robbed someone at gunpoint on Thursday morning. 

Police say two men entered the victim's residence near Broadway and Rural roads before 9 a.m. and robbed the victim at gunpoint. While inside, one of the suspects reportedly fired a gun, however no one was hit.

The suspects fled the apartment from the second-story balcony and fled on foot. 

The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries during a physical altercation, police say. 

Officers are searching the area for the suspects. One is described as a thin black man about 6 feet, 6 inches tall wearing a black tracksuit and a ponytail. The other suspect is also a black man, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, wearing a black baseball cap with a gold Arizona flag, a black and red shirt, jeans and red tennis shoes. 

Police do not believe the attack was random.
