Costa Mesa police were searching Sunday for two brazen armed robbers who took the wallets and watches of victims in two separate midday incidents in the parking lot of the upscale South Coast Plaza retail destination.

Officers were called to the 3300 block of Bristol Street about 2 p.m. Saturday on a pair of robbery calls, which occurred roughly 10 minutes apart, Costa Mesa police spokeswoman Roxi Fyad told the Orange County Register.

In each instance, two suspects brandished at least one firearm, Fyad told the newspaper. They fled in a vehicle prior to officers’ arrival.

Neither of the victims was injured and an estimated cost of the items stolen was not immediately known, Fyad said.

No descriptions of the suspects were immediately available. Anyone with information was asked to contact Costa Mesa police.
