On 10/02/14 at approx. 1am two men were fishing at the Flint River near downtown. A subject, described as a black male in his 20s approx. 5'5", 145 lbs, medium complexion, robbed the two men at gunpoint. One of the victims then ran away on foot and the second jumped into the river as the suspect fired shots at them. Another man was nearby and observed the victim in the river struggling to stay above water. That man rushed to the aid of the victim and was able to grab onto and hold onto the victim's hand until Flint Police Officers and UofM Flint Officers arrived on scene and removed the victim from the river. Neither of the victims were injured. If anyone has information on this robbery please call (810)237-6801 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP.
