Video footage shows pair in Family Dollar armed robbery
Detroit police have released surveillance footage of two suspects wanted in a January armed robbery and shooting at an east side Family Dollar.
Two males wearing hooded sweatshirts and armed with weapons entered the store in the 15200 block of East Warren about 6:45 p.m. Jan. 23, pointed guns at a 19-year-old man and demanded his cellphone, department officials have said.
Once he complied, the suspects went to the 29-year-old cashier and demanded money from the register, but she was initially unable to open it, investigators reported.
One of the suspects then “fired a shot, striking the victim,” authorities said in a statement.
The pair fled the business with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The cashier’s wound was not life-threatening, police said.
Anyone who recognizes the suspects, knows of their whereabouts or has any information on the crime is asked to call the Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-5540 or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
