Detroit police are seeking tips from the public to track down three people wanted in connection with a 64-year-old man’s assault at a west side liquor store last weekend.

The trio is accused of approaching the man inside the business in the 12800 block of Plymouth at about 6 p.m. Feb. 6.

One of the suspects allegedly said, “Give me some money,” then hit him in the face before starting to leave the store with the other two, police said in a statement.

In video footage released Friday, the older man is seen falling to the floor holding a cane. Then, while following his companions to the door, a second suspect appears to strike him once more with a fist.

All three in the group were filmed leaving the parking lot in a silver four-door vehicle.

The first suspect is described as African-American, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, 150 pounds, with a medium complexion and short black hair. He was shown in video footage wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants and gray shoes.

Investigators described the second suspect as African-American, about 25-30-years old, with black braided hair. He was last seen wearing glasses, a blue hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and dark shoes.

The third suspect captured on camera is described as African-American, 20-30 years-old, 5 feet 11 inches tall, about 195 pounds. He was wearing a dark hat, gray sweatshirt and dark pants.

Anyone who knows their whereabouts or has any information relating to the incident is asked to call the Detroit Police Second Precinct Detective Unit at (313) 596-5240 or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
