*10 P.M. Sunday Update*

College Station Police are looking for an alleged aggravated robbery suspect.

Investigators say the suspect pulled out a gun and demanded money from a man at an apartment complex pool.

Neighbors say people were in the pool area when this happened Saturday in broad daylight around 6 P.M.

College Station Police say a man wearing a bandana covering his face robbed a 47-year-old Hispanic man from Bryan, who was visiting the apartment complex.

It's a move-in weekend Texas A&M Senior Chris Allison and wife Whitney weren't expecting.

"Our apartment it's right next to the pool where it happened and we came out and saw everyone talking about it the police were there we got, we were here when the police pulled up," said Allison.

College Station police say a masked man pulled a handgun from his waistband and stole money from a Bryan man visiting the pool at the Huntington Apartments in the 1900 block of Dartmouth Street.

"Yeah that's what I thought was weird is 'cause the time of day and then also they're just like at the hot tub in their bathing suits you know. It's not worrying in the fact that they are probably not the brightest of criminals," Allison added.

Police say the suspect ran west down Dartmouth Street and met up with a another man there with both going west and disappearing at the property next door.

"No, no we were just moving in and saw it and I was like leaving a good first impression. Other than that I like the apartments it was kind of worrying seeing that," said Chris Allison.

The masked gunman is described as a black male, in his early 20's, around 5'10 in height, thin build, wearing baggy pants, a white t-shirt and a black baseball cap with a light color brim.

He also had a bandana on his face.

The other suspect is described as black man wearing a blue shirt who was taller than his accomplice and had a thin build.

The College Station Police's Criminal Investigations Division is reviewing the case.
