Authorities reached out to the public Tuesday for help in identifying and tracking down three thieves who threatened a couple with guns while robbing them at a Mission Valley apartment complex.

About 11:30 p.m. on March 20, the trio of men approached the victims in a parking garage of the Millennium Apartments, 5080 Camino del Arroyo, and pulled out handguns, according to San Diego police. One of the robbers then commanded, in Spanish, “Give me everything you have! Fast!”

After the man and woman handed over luggage and a purse, the thieves made their getaway in a car believed to have been a white early 2000s-model Hyundai Sonata or Kia Optima, police said.

The robbers were described as Latinos in their late 20s or 30s, two of them stocky and the other with a more athletic build. They were mostly dressed in dark-colored clothing, including baseball caps, though one was wearing white shoes and another had on a black-and-silver Oakland Raiders-logo track jacket.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or contact the agency online at sdcrimestoppers.org. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
