A gas station owner on Detroit’s west side is looking for help, stopping a thief who’s robbed his store dozens of times during the year.
Surveillance video shows the man placing a rock at the front door of the gas station on Warren, and then grabbing whatever he can.
It happened twice within 45 minutes early Tuesday morning, the man coming back the second time with a bag.
The owner and customers are nervous because they don’t know what will happen next. They claim a few weeks ago he robbed a man at gunpoint in front of the store.
The owner tells us he’s instructed his employees to stay behind the register and don’t leave the back.
Steven Hakim says, “We don’t want to lose a worker over $50-$100. We just want this guy caught.”
Hakim says it’s starting to add up. The same guy strikes week, after week, after week, for years. He says they’ve called police, but really need this guy stopped before he does this to others.
