Detroit Police are looking for the men responsible for a robbery at an ATM that put two people in the hospital.

It happened early Tuesday morning at the Comerica bank on the corner of West Chicago and Schaefer.

Captain John Serda with the Detroit Police 2nd Precinct says everyone needs to be extra careful at ATM's on the first of the month.  

"It’s prime time for people looking for someone to rob because a lot of people go to the bank on the first of the month," says Captain Serda.

He says that's what happened around two in the morning Tuesday at the Comerica Bank ATM on the corner of W. Chicago and Schaefer when two men and a woman with a child pulled in to withdraw money from the ATM. 

"They parked their car, walked over to the ATM and then got boxed in," he says.

The suspects pulled up in a dark SUV, possibly a Yukon or Jeep Cherokee.

"It appeared they were waiting for a victim, boxed them in so they couldn’t pull their car out, robbed them and shot them," says Captain Serda.

The woman and child were not hurt, the two men are in temporary serious condition in the hospital. 

Captain Serdas offers this advice to others: Always be aware of your surroundings especially at night.

"I know people need to get their money when they need it, but we have an ATM here at the precinct we are open 24 hours a day, come and use ours," he says.

He also advises using the ATM where you can pull up and keep the car running with windows and doors locked.
