St. Louis police say two black men robbed six people at gunpoint Saturday night, invoking the name of Michael Brown as they shook the victims down for their belongings.

Three couples, whose ages range from 59 to 61, had just left a restaurant in the 1100 block of Mississippi Avenue about 11 p.m. They were walking north on Mississippi when the suspects approached them. One of them pointed a silver handgun at the group and demanded their belongings, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

One of the suspects reportedly said, “This is for Michael Brown,” before they both fled the scene, police said.

Both were black men in their early 20s. One wore a white tank top and blue jeans. The other wore all black clothing and a black ski mask, the Post-Dispatch reported.

St. Louis police are asking anyone with information to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477.
