A quick response time helps catch a would-be bandit in the act! The call came in just before five Tuesday morning and crews were on scene within a matter of minutes and It has to be one of the more bizarre crimes the Dearborn police department has had to investigate in some time. According to reports, a man and a woman drive into the parking lot of the 7-11 located at the corner of Greenfield and Hemlock on a moped. The man stayed outside and the woman went inside with some sort of weapon that appeared to be a gun.
“Around 4:465 .. Somebody came in with a mask on and pointed a gun at my night shift worker, “ said store manager Mehsei Beydoui.
Needless to say, it was not a typical shift for the clerk who looked up and instantly knew, something bad was about to happen. ”
“He just hit the alarm button and ran out the back door. She tried to chase him out."
But according to the manager, she couldn't catch the clerk, so the bad gal went back inside to get whatever she initially was after.
She took a few items from the store, nothing crazy; cops came, saw her in the building, caught her right away and arrested her. ”
The woman who police say is in her early 20s was caught in the act, meanwhile her alleged accomplice took off on foot and has yet to be caught. Police confiscated the moped and as for the worker who fled the store? He returned to finish his shift!
"He came back just fine. Finished the rest of his shift off, cleaned everything that was messed up. That's really about it, “ said Beydoui.
