PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- The manhunt is on for two men who held a mother and three young girls at gunpoint during a brazen robbery in the city.

The victims told Pittsburgh Police two young black males wearing jeans and black shirts stole their purses and cell phones and threatened to shoot all of them.

They saw the pair sitting on the edge of the Gateway fountain before the attack.
