DEARBORN (WWJ) – Police in Dearborn are hoping the public can help investigators solve two cases of armed robbery.

The first crime happened around 2 a.m. on April 12, 2105. A white male walked into Carter’s Hamburgers, on Outer Drive just off the Southfield Freeway, and demanded cash from the register, according to police. After getting the cash, he fled the area.

The second crime happened around 1:30 p.m. on June 25, 2016. A black male armed with a handgun entered Cherry Hill Pharmacy, at Cherry Hill and W. Outer Drive, and demanded money, according to police. When the employee could not produce any cash, police say the suspect stole numerous narcotics that were stored near the counter and fled the scene.

The suspect is described as a black male, 20-30 years old, with side burns and possibly a beard. He also has a “sleeve tattoo”covering his right arm from his bicep to his wrist.

“Crimes of this nature will be investigated until the perpetrators are arrested and brought to justice,” Police Chief Ronald Haddad said in a statement. “We are urging the public to come forward with information that will assist us in identifying the suspects in these cases.”

Anyone with information on either crime is urged to contact Dearborn police at 313-943-2241, or submit a tip anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
