Detroit police are seeking tips from the public to find two people accused of trying to break into a bank ATM on the city’s east side.

The pair pulled up to the machine on the 10700 block of Gratiot at 11:05 p.m. Oct. 15 in a light-blue two-toned vehicle, investigators said in a statement.

“One of the suspects then exited the rear passenger door of the vehicle and shot at the ATM machine in an attempt to gain entry, but was unsuccessful,” the release read.

The suspects fled without taking any money, police said.

Authorities on Wednesday released surveillance images of the incident. The men are considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who knows their whereabouts is asked to call the Detroit Police Department’s 5th Precinct Investigative Unit at (313) 596-5540. Anonymous tips can also be left through Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
