The Village of Sturtevant Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying three suspects who broke into a home Nov. 20 and forced a resident at gunpoint to drive to a nearby ATM.
Police Chief Sean Marschke said at 10:34 p.m. Wednesday, officers were dispatched to a home in the 2900 block of 94th Street. When they arrived, a witness told them three Hispanic or African American males armed with semi-automatic pistols broke into the home.
“The suspects forced the victim to drive to an ATM to withdraw money,” Marschke said in a press release.
Additional details of the suspects include:
–Short in stature; approximately 5′ tall
–Dark clothing with black bandanas partially covering their faces
–Black hooded sweatshirts
Marschke said the suspects had their own vehicle and drove the victim to two banks to withdraw money from outside ATM machines before driving the victim home again. The suspects fled the scene in that same car. Unfortunately, the victim could not provide a description of the vehicle to police, the chief added.
The incident remains under investigation.
