An armed robbery at a gas station has police and the victim scratching their heads.

The thieves didn't take money. They stole pastries at gun point.

Police are now on the look out for some sticky fingers after two men stole three boxes of Honey Buns at a Citgo in Detroit.

It sounds like a strange story, but it is serious because they pulled out a gun on the security guard.

Detroit Police Sgt. Mike Woody said, "I wouldn't necessarily call them dumb, but I would tell you this much - it's a very dumb thing to be doing."

Early Sunday morning, two men drove up in a grey car at the Citgo on the 8300 block of Woodward Avenue.

One of the men went inside and collected three boxes of Honey Buns.

Police say the other man stood by the door, holding a gun.

When the security guard tried to stop them , the second suspect pulled out the weapon and they both got away.

"We very much so want to get here suspects in custody as quickly as we can," says Sgt. Woody.

The suspect with the gun is around 25-years-old, 5'11", 150 pounds and has a dark complexion.

The man who took the sweets is around 25-years-old, 5'7", 165 pounds and has a fair complexion.

"Most of the businesses in this city are very giving to their community and so I'm sure if they had just would have asked they could've gotten most of they really wanted. There is no need for this level of violence," says Sgt. Woody.

If you have any information, call Detroit police.
