The men walked around the store wearing masks that resemble those from the horror film “The Purge.”
Officers think they were trying to scare Wal-Mart shoppers, but their actual intent is still in question, because no one in the store said they saw any sort of weapon.
A shopper made an attempt to confront the men, but the masked men threw a note back to the shopper reading, “Don't be a hero.”
Lieutenant Tim Williams of the Mishawaka Police Department says it is never a good idea to approach suspicious people.
“We do not want you approaching people like that. We want you to call the police," said Williams.
Upon leaving Wal-Mart, the men were not wearing their masks and left in two separate vehicles - a Chevy Trailblazer and a Chevy Malibu.
One of the men is described as having a full red beard and in his 30's, while the other is described as a teenager with brown hair.
The case is still under investigation.
