Police: Two Gunmen Target Salvation Army Store

Posted: Updated:

ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (AP) - Police are seeking two masked gunmen who broke into a Salvation Army thrift store in suburban Detroit, hit a worker and left without taking anything.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens and the Detroit Free Press report that the robbery attempt took place on Sunday morning. The store was closed at the time, but workers were sorting clothing and other items to get ready for sale to the public.

Police say one man kept some workers in a loading dock area as the other searched part of the store.

Detective Jay Cohoe described the suspects as cowards because they targeted a Salvation Army store. He says: "It's like targeting a church."

Cohoe says the woman who was struck is expected to be OK. Police are seeking tips from the public.
