SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- An assault and robbery in broad daylight on Monday in Springfield has left two people in the hospital and police trying to figure out who did it.

Police said it was just before 3 p.m. when people entered into a home near the intersection of 54th Street and A Street in Springfield, assaulted the people inside, robbed them and took off.

The subjects haven't been identified, but they were last seen leaving the area in a white four-door sedan, according to police.

Police said the people should be considered armed and dangerous and may have a handgun with them.

Dian Cook is a friend of one of the victims and said her friend told her the people in the home were pistol-whipped.

"She said there was somebody that had come in with a gun and they pistol-whipped a couple of people and they got hauled off to the hospital," Cook said. "She also had a gun shoved in her face."

This investigation is still ongoing.
