(NECN) - Transit police in Boston are trying to track down two men who they say tried to sell guns at an MBTA stop.

Authorities say the men approached a T rider at the Airport Station and offered to him two guns on Dec. 22 at around 7 p.m.

The subjects are described as a black male and Hispanic male, and are reportedly between the ages of 17-20. The black male is between 6'0"-6'2", with a slim to medium build, medium complexion and was wearing a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball hat with a white front with the letter "P" on it, a dark parka-style coat with a fur trimmed hoot, jeans and sneakers. The Hispanic male is described between 5'6"-5'8" in height, with a slim build, a light to medium complexion, a small moustache, and was reportedly wearing a blue leather jacket with white stripes down the arms and across the chest with a symbol on the upper left chest, a dark colored hooded sweatshirt, a baseball cap and jeans.

If you have any information about the men, you're asked to call MBTA police at 617-222-1050 or text your tip to 873873.
