MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Investigators are trying to find the person who robbed two guards on Summer Avenue on Thursday afternoon.

Memphis Police Department arrived at the MLGW division building in the 2400 block of Summer Avenue around 3 p.m. after reports of a robbery.

MPD said one of the two guards from Dunbar Armored was assaulted by the suspect as the guard was coming out of the MLGW building.

The robber took a bag of money and ran west on Summer Avenue in a mid-2000 model black Jeep Liberty with a black leather tire cover over the spare on the back of the vehicle.

MPD said there may also be a discoloration on the right passenger side of the hood of the vehicle, possibly a white or gray spot. 

The suspect is described as a black male, 5'7''-5'10'', 165lbs, and was wearing a white hoodie and dark pants. 

One of the guards fired his weapon, but police do not know if the suspect was shot.

The robber ran off and has not yet been located.
