A black SUV was seen backing out of a spot near a drive-thru when it struck a tan Toyota. The driver and passenger in each car got out.

Moments later, the Toyota occupants “robbed the victims at gunpoint,” investigators said in a statement.

Nearly $200 was taken from the 25-year-old SUV driver and his female companion, said Officer Jennifer Moreno, a spokeswoman for the Detroit Police Department.

The Toyota driver and his female passenger then fled the scene.

Police have released images of the pair in a bid to spur tips from the public.

Anyone who recognizes them or has information on the theft is asked to call the Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-1240 or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at (800) SPEAK-UP.
