University police are searching for two men involved in an alleged armed assault Tuesday.

The two men allegedly assaulted two people with a handgun at Hitch Suites before fleeing toward Sunset Boulevard, according to a UCPD crime alert. No shots were fired, said UCPD Lt. Kevin Kilgore in an emailed statement.

One of the victims was a student and suffered no injuries. The other victim sustained minor injuries and was not affiliated with UCLA, the alert read. Neither of the victims requested medical treatment following the incident, Kilgore said.

UCPD described one of the men as 19 years old and black, with dark hair. He also wore a black hooded sweatshirt, olive green pants and a black hat. The other man was described as an 18- to 22-year-old black man with dark hair who wore a blue hooded sweatshirt with a red logo, black jeans and a hat, according to the alert. 

The two men fled in a car described by UCPD as a gray Dodge Charger four-door sedan that featured a front bumper with yellow stripes.

The motive for the alleged assault is still unknown and the incident is still under investigation, Kilgore said. He also declined to comment about where in Hitch Suites the incident occurred because of the investigation.

The incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to call UCPD at 310-825-1491.
