Stranded motorist robbed on Detroit freeway

Detroit police searching for 2 suspects

DETROIT – Police are on the lookout for two men who preyed on a stranded motorist this morning. The man says his mini-van overheated on westbound I-94 between Cadiux and Harper.

He pulled to the side and says within seconds two men ambushed him to perform a highway robbery.

 

The driver tells Local 4 that he takes I-94 to work each morning and fears breaking down on the side of the road.  He carries a gun in his van for protection but says the men told him if he reached for his gun they would kill him.

The robbers got away with that gun and the man's cash.

 

Michigan State Police are investigating.
