MADISON HEIGHTS (AP) – Three men wearing Halloween masks have been arrested after trying to rob a credit union in Madison Heights, about six miles north of Detroit.
The Daily Tribune in Royal Oak reports that a woman called police Thursday morning after seeing the men force her adult daughter into the Family Services Credit Union about 8:15 a.m. as she opened a rear door to start the business day.
Police say one man stood guard outside as the other two told the employee to open the vault. All three ran into a nearby wooded area when she was unable to do so.
A police tracking dog led officers to the men, who range in age from 18 to 28. Police say they are from Oak Park, Detroit and Toledo, Ohio.
