Officers are searching for two men suspected of beating a teen and robbing him.

Investigators say around 10:30 PM Sunday, an 18-year-old man was walking through an apartment complex near 16th & S. Memorial with a friend. 

Police say a man with a baseball bat approached the pair, and that's when the man and the teen's friend both began to attack the teen.

The victim managed to get free and ran to the nearby Sonic near 21st & S. Memorial to call for help.

Police say the suspects stole the teen's shoes, phone, and cash.

Paramedics treated the teen at the scene for minor injuries.

Officers were not able to locate the suspects.
