Police: Armed robbers hit same location twice in 5 minutes
Police are investigating after a two-man stick-up crew allegedly conducted two armed robberies about five minutes apart Saturday on Detroit's east side.
The armed robberies started about 1:30 a.m. at Van Dyke and Lafayette.
Police say the two men pulled up in a royal blue Chrysler 200, got out and one of them pulled a blue steel automatic handgun on a 46-year-old man. The man handed over his cell phone, and the suspects fled.
Minutes later, the royal blue Chrysler 200 pulled up to that same location and pulled a gun on a 43-year-old man. They took his cell phone and wallet and fled.
Neither victim was injured.
Police describe the gun-wielding suspect as a man in his 20s, standing 5 feet 11 inches tall, and weighing 170 pounds. He has braids and dark skin. He wore black jogging pants with a white stripe.
The driver of the Chrysler 200 is a black male in his 20s, about 6 feet 1 inch tall, 180 pounds. He wore a black scarf over his face, a red coat, and dark jeans.
