Grosse Pointe Woods — Police continue to investigate an armed robbery that took place at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20, in the driveway of a house on Bournemouth near Mack.

According to police, a 31-year-old male walked home from his job at St. John Hospital and Medical Center, stopping to check his mail. When he turned around, he was confronted by two men, one of whom held a gun to his chest.

The unknown suspects demanded his valuables. He turned over his backpack, containing his wallet with credit cards and identification, an iPad, a cellphone and a medical textbook.

The victim was ordered to go into his backyard and the suspects left. The victim stayed in the backyard for several minutes before going to a neighbor’s house to call police.

Police brought in a tracking dog from St. Clair Shores, but the dog lost the scent in the middle of the street, leading police to believe the suspects left the area by car.

Details are scarce. The suspects are described as two black males, dressed in black hoodies. One of the hoodies may have had red lettering on the front.

According to Woods public safety director Andrew Pazuchowski, there has been no activity with the victim’s credit cards, making it difficult for police to track suspects.

“Usually by now credit cards would have been used, which would have given us clue as to where the suspects were headed, but so far there has been no activity,” he said. “We have not been able to track his phone, either.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Woods police, (313) 343-2400.
