(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Rochester Police are looking for suspects after three people were robbed at gun point in the Chateau Theater parking lot.

Just before 10 p.m. Monday night, police were called to what appears to be a drug deal gone bad. The victims let the suspects into their vehicle to sell or buy marijuana, when the suspects pulled out a hand gun and stun gun and began stunning the victims. The three victims, two young men and woman were able to get out of the vehicle without sustaining major injuries.

The suspects who police say are described as Somali males, stole cash and their cell phone and fled in their own vehicle described as a dark green older Chevy Van.

Police say there were marks on the victims consistent with a stun gun. The female victim had fled the scene before police arrived. Rochester Police are still looking for the suspects.
