YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Two men hoping to find a new tenant for a rental property on Youngstown's North Side ended up becoming victims of an armed robbery.

The men told police they were cleaning up a home at Ford and Alameda Avenues on Friday when a man wearing a ski mask approached them outside and asked if they would show him the home.

Once inside, the men say the prospective renter pulled out a gun and robbed them.

He ordered the two men to get down on the kitchen floor, and then left the home.

Neither of the victims was injured.

They gave police a description of the suspect.
