Suspect sought in Detroit Burger King robbery attempt
Detroit police are seeking the public's help to find a suspect wanted in connection with the attempted armed robbery of an east-side Burger King this month.
The suspect entered the eatery in the 17400 block of East Warren about 1:10 p.m. June 14 and approached the counter as if about to order, police said in a statement.
According to police, the man then pulled out a gun and said, "Give me all the registers, this is for my kids!"
He fled after workers and witnesses backed away from the counter, police said.
The suspect is described as age 25-30, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 165 pounds, with a dark complexion, and full beard and mustache. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black T-shirt and blue jeans.
Investigators on Monday released images of the man.
Anyone with information is asked to call the 5th Precinct Detective Unit at (313) 596-5549 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP.
