The second suspect is described as a male wearing a dark-coloured puffy jacket, a black ski mask covering his face, dark-coloured pants and black running shoes with white soles.
The suspect vehicle is described as a green Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck with a green canopy. The canopy has a small sticker on the rear window on the lower right-hand side.
