Gunmen take $4, cellphone, hoodie from teen in Detroit

Detroit — If three penny-ante crooks divvy up the cash they robbed from a teenager at gunpoint Wednesday, they’ll each get $1.33 — but it’s unclear which of them will get the hoodie they also stole.

A 17-year-old boy told police he was walking on the northwest side near Outer Drive and Tracey at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, when a silver older-model Dodge Durango pulled up. A man and two teens, also wearing hoodies, jumped out.

“One of them said, ‘Run your stuff (slang for ‘give me your stuff’),’ while the other two held guns on him,” Detroit Police Officer Shawn Peoples said.

The gunmen took $4 in cash, a Samsung Galaxy cellphone, and a black hoodie from the teen.

“(Criminals) will steal anything that’s not nailed down,” Peoples said.

The youth was not hurt.

The suspects were all described as black males; one was about 20 years old, with a small build and light complexion, and wore a green hoodie; another, about 17, was also small, but with a dark complexion and a blue hoodie; while the third suspect was about 15, and described as about 5’5, a light complexion and with a gray hoodie.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Detroit Police Criminal Investigations Bureau at (313) 596-5540.
