2 sought in armed robbery on Detroit’s west side
Detroit police are working to find two men accused of robbing a woman at gunpoint this month on the city’s west side.
The pair approached the 49-year-old victim as she was walking home from the bus stop near Evergreen and Puritan at about 7 p.m. Nov. 4, investigators said in a statement.
“One suspect stayed to her rear and the other walked around to block her path,” the release read. “The suspect in front of her pulled out a handgun and demanded her purse, while the other suspect snatched her phone from her hand.”
The suspects then fled.
To generate tips from the public, authorities on Monday released pictures of the men captured on a store surveillance camera.
One of the men is described as African-American and in his 20s, 5-foot-11, 170 pounds, with short black hair and a medium complexion. He was last seen wearing a dark shirt and red pants while toting a gun.
Police described the other only as black and around age 20.
Anyone who recognizes them or has any information is asked to call Detroit police at (313) 596-5845 or (313) 596-5840. Anonymous tips can also be left through the DPD Connect app or by calling Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
