Detectives from the Livingston County Sheriff's Department are investigating half a dozen tips in reference to the armed robbery at a PNC Bank in Brighton that occurred Monday, according to the Press & Argus.
According to police, around 9:40 a.m. Monday, a man entered the PNC Bank at 8130 W. Grand River Ave. with a semi-automatic handgun and demanded money. The man ran away with an undisclosed amount.
According to the Press & Argus, police apprehended a man they believed robbed the BP gas station at 204 W. Grand River Ave. in Brighton earlier Monday morning. Police at first believed the two robberies were related, but they have now eliminated him as a suspect in the bank robbery. Police are also continuing to investigate the gas station robbery.
The bank robbery suspect is described by police as being small in stature, around 5’6’’, and wore dark sunglasses and a scarf-type garment around his mouth. According to the Press & Argus, the man is believed to be in his 20s.
The suspect was also wearing a tan and gray colored hooded coat with black or blue and white stripes around the elbow area with dark-colored windbreaker type pants, according to a press release.
