Authorities say a notice went out via Everbridge to let people know three male suspects were being sought in the area of Cresta Loma Circle Tuesday afternoon.

The Sheriff' Office identified two of the suspects as Albert Rael and Alejandor Jose Carveo. Their pictures can be seen above.

The third suspect is a juvenile and thus will not be identified.
