Armed Robber Who Stole from Chesterfield Gas Station at Large
Chesterfield Township police said Monday they're searching for a man who robbed the Speedway gas station on 21 Mile near Interstate 94.
Investigators are searching for an armed robber who targeted a Chesterfield Township gas station, police said Monday.
At approximately 4 a.m. Sunday, the suspect walked into the Speedway gas station at 26115 21 Mile near I-94. He selected food items from the station and approached the counter with money in his hand. As the clerk began to ring him up, he pulled out a black handgun and demanded money from the register, according to township Detective Sgt. Deron Myers.
The clerk complied with the thief's demands and he then fled behind the gas station with an undisclosed amount of cash. Township police and the Macomb County Sheriff's K-9 Unit searched for the suspect but were unable to find him. They surmised he escaped the area in a waiting car, Myers said.
The suspect is described to be in his early to mid-20s, six-feet tall with a stocky build. He had facial hair and a pierced lip. He wore a black hooded coat with a gray sweatshirt underneath and black gloves, police said.
Police said Monday morning they are also continuing to search for another armed robber who held up a couple early Nov. 7 in the 23 Mile and Gratiot area.
Anyone with information that could assist in their investigations, is asked to call 586-949-2450 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
