Detroit police are seeking tips to find two people wanted in connection with a carjacking and armed robbery reported early Thursday on the city’s east side. 

One of the suspects in the carjacking and armed robbery on the city's east side Wednesday was captured on camera at a nearby business.

The pair approached a 33-year-old woman as she was removing items from her 2005 Chrysler Pacifica about 2:10 a.m. in the 10100 block of Britain and took it at gunpoint, investigators said in a statement.

The car was abandoned at a Project Green Light gas station in the 11000 block of Morang about 3:20 a.m. The suspects then reportedly robbed another person at gunpoint at a nearby bus stop before running north on Rossiter, according to the release.

Authorities have released surveillance images of the suspects.

One is described as in his early 20s, 6-foot-5, about 240 pounds.

Surveillance footage showed a second suspect in the carjacking and armed robbery on the city's east side Wednesday.

The other is described as 20-25 years old, 5-foot-6 or 6-foot-7, with a slim build. He was last seen wearing a black hooded zip-up jacket, ripped blue jeans with red shorts underneath and Air Jordan gym shoes. 

Anyone who recognizes them or knows their whereabouts is asked to call the Detroit Police Department’s Commercial Auto Theft Unit at (313) 596-2555 or 1-800-242-HEAT.
