Man nearly carjacked at gunpoint, fights off two men on Detroit's east side

The Detroit Police Department is asking for help in identifying two men wanted for attempted carjacking.

On Monday, April 22 around 10:30 p.m. a 41-year-old man walked out of a gas station to his 2010 Toyota Camry. Located at the corner of Conant Street and Commor Avenue on Detroit's eastside, when he tried to get in his car, a man followed him and put a gun to the back of his head. 

The victim attempted to knock the gun away when a second man came up and started hitting him.

Eventually, the two suspects forced themselves into the victim's car, but were unable to drive away. In the video, the victim can be seen holding the keys. That's when the two men got out of the car on the passenger side and ran away.

Police are releasing the video in hopes that someone recognizes the two suspects in the video.

If anyone recognizes the suspects, they're asked to contact the DPD at 313-596-2555 or CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
