Detroit police believe the AK-47 bandits have struck 2 more times.
The latest robbery happened around 2 a.m. Wednesday at a Mobile station on Harper at Cadieux on the city’s east side.
Investigators believe four men were involved in the robbery - with two men parking on the side of a near fast food restaurant in a white impala to serve as look outs. Two other men wearing masks and carrying AK-47s went inside the gas station and demanded money from the gas station clerk.
---This gas station was robbed by the AK-47 bandits in October
Shortly before that gas station was robbed, police say they believe the same crew robbed the BP gas station at Seven Mile Road near I-75.
Police put the alert out in October that the same group of men – all armed with AK-47 assault rifles had been targeting gas stations and terrorizing clerks all over Detroit.
