Eastpointe — Authorities may be hoping to catch three thieves with their sweatpants down.

Eastpointe police officers are asking the public for help to find three men who stole nearly $1,800 in sweatpants from a store last week, officials said.

Police said the theft happened at about 12:45 p.m. last week Sunday at a Foot Locker store on Eight Mile near Kelly Road.

Authorities also released photos of the men captured by the store's security surveillance system.

The men grabbed Nike Air Jordan sweatpants from a display inside the store and ran out of the door, according to authorities. The pants were black, pink and green or black and red.

A security guard at the store tried to stop the trio, but was assaulted. The three then fled in a 2003 blue Chevrolet Trailblazer.

Anyone with information about the suspects should call Eastpointe Police at (586) 445-5100 ext. 1028.
