Tue, 27 Apr 2021 10:23:35 EDT

Alpena City Police have officially released more information about the search for two suspects this (Tuesday) morning on Alpena's Northside.

Authorities say at about 2:00 a.m., two suspects allegedly forcibly entered a residence in the 400 block of South Second Avenue and confronted a male and female resident.

The suspects allegedly held the victims at gunpoint, demanded valuables, and when the victims were unable to comply, one of the suspects repeatedly beat the male victim about the head with a handgun.

Both suspects fled the scene in a gray-colored passenger car, which was later observed traveling at a high rate of speed on Chisholm Street near Johnson. When the officer turned to follow, the vehicle turned right onto Johnson and continued at an excessive speed.

As units from multiple agencies converged, the suspect vehicle stopped near a residence on Ford near Miller Street, where it was abandoned and the suspects
scaled a fence bordering DPI.

Officers searched the area for several hours, including deployment of a K9 unit and drone, but the suspects evaded capture.

Two handguns apparently discarded were located on Miller Street, and it appears the victims were specifically targeted.

The suspects currently remain at large and should be considered dangerous. Both are described as black males; with one being in his late 20's and displaying a large red "GR" tatoo on the front of his throat area.

The suspects are considered dangerous and should not be approached, and if spotted, citizens should call 911.
