Lansing Police Looking For Two Involved In Armed Robbery

Police are looking for two men, they believe are responsible for an armed robbery at Babe's Party Depot in Lansing.

Police tell us they believe two black men in their early 20's walked into the party store, armed with a high-powered rifle, possibly an AK-47.

Surveillance video show shows two men entering the depot just after 9pm, dressed in dark clothes with hoods.

Police say they took out a long barrel weapon, possibly an AK-47, they then hit the clerk with the gun, but did not shoot him.

The clerk was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries.

Police say video helped them spot the two men leave the store and head south down New York Avenue.

Unfortunately the K-9's lost the track just a few blocks away.

It's unclear if the suspects got away on foot or in a car.

"It could be a problem if they got into a vehicle, because we lost the tracks this fast, another problem we have is there was a lot of foot traffic that interfered with the dogs tracks and we had a couple other factors that we are still trying to sort out," Sgt. Joe Brown said.

Because the poor quality of the surveillance video, only a brief description is available.

Again police believe the two are black men in their early 20's last seen wearing dark hoodies.
