Police seek suspects in armed robbery at Detroit ATM
Detroit police are seeking help from the public to find three people wanted in connection with an armed robbery on the city’s east side last week.
A 25-year-old woman was in her car withdrawing from the ATM at a bank in the 10700 block of Gratiot about 8:45 p.m. Sept. 23 when she noticed a gold GMC Yukon idling in front of another machine nearby, police said in a statement.
“Upon the completion of her transaction, two unknown suspects exited the gold GMC Yukon and approached her vehicle,” the statement read. “One of the suspects pointed a handgun at her face and demanded her money. The victim threw the money out the window and quickly drove away.”
Two people retrieved the cash, ran back to the SUV then fled, police said.
One is described as a black male in his 20s, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 160 pounds. The second suspect is described as a black male in 20s, 5 feet 7 inches tall, 190 pounds.
A description of the third person was not available.
Police on Wednesday released surveillance footage and still images of the suspects.
Anyone who has seen the suspects, knows their whereabouts or has any information related to the robbery is asked to call the Detroit Police Department’s Criminal Investigations unit at (313) 596-1616 or leave an anonymous tip through the DPD Connect app or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
