Amsterdam police are seeking the public's help in finding two suspects who allegedly pistol-whipped a victim before stealing their car on Sanford Avenue Friday night.

Police said the victim was approached by two black men, one dark-skinned, one light-skinned, who struck him in the head with a handgun then stole the victim's vehicle.

The vehicle was later found on Merrill Avenue Saturday, where it was processed for evidence. The case is still under investigation at this time.
