Two armed suspects escaped with just $1.50, a bank card and the wrong personal identification number for the card after robbing a deaf man early Friday.

The victim said he opened the door about 3 a.m. at a residence on W. Court Street, near Vosburg Street, for a young man wearing a mask, police reports said. The suspect and another man came inside while pointing guns at the victim.

They took $1.50 from the table and an ATM card and told the man to write down his PIN number.

The victim said he wrote down the wrong number, and the suspects ran from the scene.
