St. Clair Shores Police are looking for two men suspected of robbing a man on Alger Street at gunpoint in the early morning hours of July 19.
Police said the two men approached a man in his 50s as he was getting out of his vehicle in his driveway in the 22000 block of Alger Street around 2 a.m. July 19. One of the men was armed with a silver handgun and ordered the victim “not to move.” The victim later heard a car drive away once he got inside his home; he was not hurt in the incident.
“One raised a gun to him; they said, ‘Give us your money,’ (and) one went right to his front pocket, grabbed some money out of his pants pocket (and) rifled through his pants pocket,” said Detective Gordon Carrier.
The suspects are described as black, in their late teens to early 20s, standing 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, with one being heavier — just under 200 pounds and wearing a white T-shirt under his hooded sweatshirt and baggie blue jeans — and one weighing about 170 pounds, also in blue jeans. They could possibly be in a 2008-2010 grayish blue Dodge Charger.
Before he arrived home, the St. Clair Shores man had stopped at a gas station in Harper Woods.
“From the surveillance video, it appeared to us that he was targeted at the gas station,” Carrier said. “The reason why we think he was targeted is because he had his wallet out in the open and had cash out in the open.”
Carrier said a suspect in the gas station appeared to notice.
“He backed up, kept looking at him … said, ‘Go ahead in front of me,’” Carrier said. “That’s why we think he was targeted.”
The suspect is seen on tape following the victim out of the store.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at (586) 445-5305.
“Be aware of your surroundings. Keep your valuables hidden,” advised Carrier.
