BROOKLYN — The Columbia Township Police Department is looking for tips that will lead to the arrest of two men suspected of robbing a Brooklyn business Thursday.
Officers were dispatched at 5:25 p.m. to a robbery that had just occurred at Smokin’ Sam’s Tobacco Shop at 170 S. Main St. in Brooklyn, police chief David Elwell said in a statement.
Elwell said two suspects had forced their way into the store through a side door of the business. Once inside, one of the suspects stated they were armed, but the victim said no firearm was produced. The victim was assaulted and forced into the restroom where he was instructed to remain.
The suspects ultimately left with an undisclosed amount of cash. A K-9 unit assisted at the scene and was able to track the suspects’ trails through part of the village.
The suspects were both identified as males: one is a 30-year-old white male, 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing a 190 pounds. He was last seen wearing light-colored shorts, a dark-colored T-shirt and a backpack. The second suspect was a male of unknown description.
The Columbia Township Police Department was assisted by the Blackman-Leoni Township Department of Public Safety’s K-9 unit as well as the Napoleon Township Police Department.
Anyone with information about the two suspects may call Columbia Township police at 517-592-3122.
