Robbers With AK-47s Hit Two Detroit Gas Stations
DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit police are investigating whether a group of AK-47 wielding robbers who hit two gas stations Wednesday morning are responsible for several similar crimes that have recently occurred across the city.
Sam Adbullah was manning the till at the BP gas station on 7 Mile near I-75 around 4 a.m. when he looked up at the security camera.
“I had the camera turned on in the back. Usually I don’t, but tonight for some reason I had it on the back,” Adbullah told WWJ’s Ron Dewey.
Adbullah said he saw a vehicle drive up and four men exit the car with assault rifles drawn.
“I saw the car and then it disappeared, and then it popped back up on the camera in the back on the building. I saw them come out with the guns and everything. So, I said ‘Oh, s***!’ and I just closed the door, went over there, picked up the phone and called the police,” he said.
Adbullah said he locked the door and got down behind the bullet proof glass. When the robbers couldn’t get in, they left.
“It was frightening but you know, you just take control, your mind takes control,” he said.
Adbullah said unfortunately, dealing with robberies comes with the territory of owning a gas station in Detroit.
