Police: Driver flagged down, robbed at gunpoint
Police say a 42-year-old man, a driver for a ride-hailing company, was robbed at gunpoint Thursday morning on Detroit's east side.
The armed robbery took place around 2:40 a.m. in the area of Emery and the Interstate 75 Service Drive, said Officer Dan Donakowski. That's just north of East Seven Mile.
The victim was driving in the area when three men, described only as two black males and one white male, flagged him down.
When he stopped, the men approached him and, at gunpoint, ordered him to give up his cash and credit cards.
Then the men got into a black four-door Ford Crown Victoria, and headed northbound on the I-75 Service Drive.
Police continue to investigate.
