Leads sought on foiled robbery

Toledo police are seeking information through the Crime Stopper program about two men who tried to rob the University of Toledo/Medical College of Ohio Hospitals credit union but were thwarted by an employee and an off-duty police officer.

The masked suspects got out of their car about 9:30 a.m. Dec. 6 and approached the credit union, 5248 Hill Ave. An employee saw them as they were drawing their weapons and locked the door so they couldn't enter.

The off-duty officer, who was inside the credit union, pointed his weapon at the men, who ran to their car and fled. The car was recovered, and police learned it had been stolen.

The suspects are described as black, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, and wearing dark clothing. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stopper. Callers may remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
