At approximately 1:30 p.m., police responded to an armed robbery inside office space at 30400 23 Mile Road in an area behind the popular bar. Officers surrounded the building before learning the thieves fled seconds before, according to township police.
The chief financial officer for the business told police he was doing the bookkeeping for the St. Patrick's Day weekend when the two unknown men entered his office, pointed a handgun at him and ordered him to the ground. They bound his hands and feet with duct tape and ransacked his desk area, finding a large undisclosed amount of cash, Detective Sgt. Deron Myers stated.
A female worker from one of the rear offices then interrupted them. They pointed the gun at her as she approached. She then escaped to the back of the building. The suspects fled on foot out of the front door with the cash in a black brief case, Myers said.
"We suspect there was a vehicle nearby," he said.
The CFO was able to free himself and call 911, police said.
Investigators are exploring how the men had knowledge of the bookkeeping that takes place in the office that is not attached to Rosie O'Grady's. They say the investigation is ongoing in this early stage.
The first suspect is described to be a white male in his mid-30s, average height and weight, wearing a dark ski mask, large frame glasses, black leather jacket and blue jeans. He was armed with a dark-colored handgun.
The second suspect is described to be a white male, weighing 300 pounds or more, wearing a dark knit ski mask, gray-hooded sweatshirt and sweat pants with two white striped down the side. He also had a dark-colored handgun.
Anyone with information is asked to call Chesterfield Police Department at 586-949-2322 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
