Police say the three were wearing all dark clothing when they backed into the lobby of the motel. This included hats, masks, and gloves.
Officers say two suspects got out of the SUV and tried to lift the ATM into the vehicle. However, it was too heavy for them and they got back into the Durango and the third suspect drove off.
The front desk clerk suffered minor injuries, but refused treatment.
The Durango has been recovered by the Detroit Police Department.
