DETROIT – Two men are being sought in connection with the armed robbery Sunday morning of three boxes of honey buns from a Detroit gas station.

A man entered a gas station in the 8000 block of Woodward Avenue at about 1:30 a.m., police said.

Police said he walked over to the honey buns, picked up three boxes and headed for the door. The security guard tried to stop him and the thief pointed a gun at him, police said.

The thief told the security guard to “step back,” according to police.

Police said the thieves escaped in a gray Honda 2-door vehicle with a temporary tag in the back window.

The security guard was not injured.

Police believe that two men were involved in the robbery. The first thief is described as black with a dark complexion, 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds, wearing a black T-shirt and dark shorts. The second man is described as black with a light complexion, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 165 pounds, clean shaven, with a medium-size Afro, and was wearing a white T-shirt and beige Dickies pants.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detroit police.
