CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – Two men called police looking for help after two men stole their drugs and money  late Saturday night, police said.

The incident happened between 11 am Saturday until 12:30 am on Sunday when a 65-year-old man and a 36-year-old man said their cocaine and marijuana was stolen, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said in a report.

"Officers were flagged down by victim," in the 100 block of Marmion Road, police said in the report. "Victims advised unknown suspects were invited into the address after knocking on door."

Once the two men were inside the "suspects robbed victims of listed property by brandishing a black firearm."  The stolen items were $1100, cocaine powder and marijuana.

Police said Monday that it is very unusual for victims to report that drugs have been stolen.

On the report, the two victims, both unemployed, are listed as being under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

Police said that the two victims were not charged despite the fact they claimed to have their drugs stolen.

Both men suffered minor injuries.

It's unclear to what extent police will help the men recover their stolen items, but the incident has been placed under investigation.
