State police are seeking help in identifying two men who are accused of forcing their way into a Fayette County residence at gunpoint, sexually assaulting a woman and robbing her and a boy.

Police said the two men broke a side door to gain entry to a Greenpoint Circle residence in North Union at 1 a.m. Monday, waking the woman and the child. The men made their way to an upstairs master bedroom, where the woman and child went to hide after they were awakened by the sound of shattering glass, according to police.

The men demanded money and forced the woman and child downstairs at gunpoint.

The woman gave one of the men a small amount of cash, a debit card and jewelry from her purse.

The man then reached into the woman's underwear and touched her as the two stood in the living room, according to a police report.

The other man ordered the child by gunpoint to his bedroom, where the man took iPod headphones, a Toshiba laptop computer, a cell phone case and a charger case.

The two men ran from the scene, according to police.

Both men are described as black males, in their mid 20s, who covered their faces with white T-shirts.

One of the men is 6 feet 2 inches tall with a large build. He wore a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants. He was carrying a silver, short-barreled revolver.

The other man is 5 feet 10 inches tall and has a medium build. He wore black jeans and a black and red Ohio State hooded sweatshirt. He was carrying a large, black semiautomatic pistol.

Police withheld the woman's name because of the alleged sexual assault and did not provide an age for the boy.

A forensics team dusted for fingerprints at the scene, and an investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call state police at Uniontown at 724-439-7111.
