Video of brazen robbery at Ann Arbor party store shows masked man pointing shotgun at clerk
Ann Arbor police have released the security camera footage of a brazen robbery at the Broadway Party Store last week, showing a masked man pointing a shotgun directly at the clerk.
The robbery took place at about 10 p.m. April 9 at the party store, 1027 Broadway St., Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said. The video shows the men walking up to the clerk, one wearing a mask that looks like a skull and holding a shotgun, and taking cash and liquor.
The clerk holds his hands up and allows the second man, who appears to be unarmed in the video, to go through the register and steal cash after grabbing liquor from behind the counter.
No one was injured during the incident, Bush said. The University of Michigan’s K-9 unit was called in to help search for the men but they were unable to locate them, Bush said.
The first man was described as black, about 5-feet-10 inches tall and thin, wearing a white coat with a white mask, Bush said. The second man was described as black, about 5-feet-5 inches tall and wearing a gray mask, Bush said.
Anyone with information on the robbery is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-7639.
