Two teen-aged suspects are being sought after they were caught red-handed trying to steal scrap metal.

A deliveryman was making a delivery at ARB Heating and Cooling on Olean Road in Holland when he confronted the two teens, who were taking scrap metal from the site. He was punched in the face and the two teens fled into the woods.

A K9 search was unsuccessful.

Both teens are described as white, between around 17-18-years-old with thin builds, around 120-130 pounds with dirty blond hair.

One was wearing blue jeans, a black Under Armour pullover hooded sweatshirt and the Under Armour logo was multi-colored. The other was wearing gray sweatpants with cargo pockets, a blue pullover hooded sweatshirt and a white ball cap that appeared to have a Gators logo worn backwards.

A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for their arrest. Call 716-867-6161 if you have any information.
