    Rocky Hill police said they have identified two men suspected of robbing two people at the Forest Park apartment complex in Rocky Hill last night.

    Police received a 911 call at 11:27 p.m. on Thursday about an armed robbery at the apartment complex on West Street.

    The victims said there were two robbers and the men had at least one gun.

    Both men were about 6-feet-tall, wore black or brown jackets and black hats and fled in a black Volvo SUV with Connecticut plate 6AALK5.

    Officers saw a car matching that description turn from West Street onto Interstate 91 North and tried to stop the car, but abandoned the pursuit when the car approached Route 2 in Glastonbury, police said.

    Police alerted nearby police departments as well as state police. Troopers were able to find the car on the side of Route 2, but it had been abandoned.

    Police said they identified the men, with help from the state Department of Parole, but they have not released the names.

    The man who had the gun is being held on an unrelated narcotics violation, police said. 

    Police said arrest warrants for both suspects are forthcoming.
