WARREN — Police were dispatched to the Marathon gas station at the corner of Nine Mile and Dequindre on Sept. 24 after a customer was reportedly struck in the head and robbed by two men while he was waiting for a bus.
According to Warren Police Detective Sgt. Brian Kijewski, patrol officers were sent to the gas station at 5:45 p.m. and spoke to a 59-year-old Hazel Park man who said he was assaulted and robbed.
“The guy was at the bus stop. Two black males, about 35 (years old), approached him and asked him if he had money. He said, ‘No,’” Kijewski said. “He was hit in the head with a pipe. They took $18 out of his backpack, fled on foot.”
Kijewski said the victim provided no further descriptions of the two men who allegedly assaulted him.
The man refused medical attention offered at the scene, according to the report. Police had no suspects or witnesses at press time.
Anyone with information about the incident can reach Warren detectives at (586) 574-4810.
