Those who can identify the suspects or vehicle are encouraged to call Det. Tracey at 734- 794-6930 ext. 49319 or the tip line at 734-794-6939, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The armed robbery occurred at about 10:15 a.m. yesterday morning. The two suspects arrived in a stolen vehicle that was taken earlier yesterday morning from Pittsfield, Mich., Sgt. Craig Flocken of the Ann Arbor Police Department said last night.
“We’re still investigating,” Flocken said. “They’re still out.”
According to Flocken, “an undetermined amount of cash was obtained.”
After the robbery, the suspects fled on foot from the bank, which is located south of campus at 3201 East Eisenhower Parkway, Lt. Renee Bush of the Ann Arbor Police Department said yesterday afternoon.
According to the University Department of Public Safety website, the two suspects “fled on foot in a northeasterly direction.”
The suspects are “considered armed and dangerous,” Bush said. No one was injured.
According to Bush, both suspects are black males in their 20s between 5’6” and 5’10” tall. One suspect was wearing a blue knit ski mask, gray T-shirt, dark sweatpants and orange and white tennis shoes, while the second suspect was wearing a “gray/blackish” hoodie, blue basketball shorts with a white stripe down the leg and white tennis shoes, Bush said.
One of the suspects was armed with a “long gun,” a wanted poster created by the Ann Arbor Police Department states. The poster also contains still photos of the suspects from the bank’s surveillance camera.
“They last were seen in the area between Packard and County Farm Park on the east side of town,” the University Police’s website stated. ” … Be cautious if you need to be in that area of town.”
According to the DPS website, police officers from the Ann Arbor Police Department and DPS, as well as a K-9 unit, responded to the incident and were searching the area yesterday.
“Officers are actively looking for suspects and the police department is investigating,” Bush said.
Six Ann Arbor Public Schools were on lockdown yesterday and a “Code Red emergency notification (had) been issued to alert citizens near the area,” the DPS website stated.
“That was probably just standard procedure for safety’s sake,” Flocken said of the schools’ lockdowns. “All the lockdown stuff is long gone.”
The schools will proceed as usual tomorrow, according to Flocken.
