Detroit — Police are looking for two suspects who robbed a 32-year-old man earlier last month and fired shots when the victim attempted to take down their license plate number.

Officials released surveillance images Monday of two suspects they said robbed the victim around 1:40 a.m. July 3 on the 14100 block of Greenfield.

The victim was walking to his vehicle with a friend when the first suspect approached and asked if they had a cigarette lighter, police said. Before they could answer, the suspect produced a gun.

The second suspect stood behind the group, acting as a lookout, police said.

The victim handed over his cellphone and the suspects fled in a blue Dodge Caravan, police said. The victim got into his vehicle with his friend and chased the suspects, pulling up alongside their van in an attempt to get its license plate number.

The suspect in the driver’s seat fired shots at the victim, police said. The victim and his friend were not injured.

The suspects are described by police as 25-year-old males with small builds. The suspect who held the gun and drove the getaway vehicle is 120 pounds and has a medium brown complexion and mustache, police said. He was wearing a neon-green shirt and blue Levi pants.

The second suspect is 170 pounds and has a light-brown complexion, police said. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with a black shirt underneath.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Dunning of the Eighth Precinct at (313) 596-5850 or Tipsters also may call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) SPEAK-UP.
