Security guard bound in robbery attempt

ELKRIDGE, Md. (WMAR) -  

Police in Howard County are looking for two men they say are responsible for bounding a female security guard and then trying to rob a Best Buy.
 
Police say a security guard was on duty, in her security vehicle, in the parking lot of the Best Buy warehouse in the 6600 block of Business Parkway, when two men approached the vehicle. 
 
The suspects approached the vehicle and hit the driver's side window, smashing out the glass. The suspects then bound the woman's hands and feet, and then placed her in the rear seat. 
 
The suspects then told her they were there to take equipment from the store. 
 
When the security guard heard the suspects leaving, she was able to free herself and call 911. 
 
Officers secured the scene and said that nothing was taken. 
 
The first suspect is described as a black male, 5'9" tall with a think build, wearing a black skull hat, black mask, blue coat, black pants and dark gloves. 
 
The second is described as being a black male, 5'6" tall with a thin build and dressed all in black.
 
Anyone with any information is asked to call police.
