Posted at 4:15 PM, Nov 16, 2015

HOLLAND, Mich. – Holland Police are looking for the men who robbed an 80-year-old man at an ATM Sunday night.

Police say that the two men approached the man at the ATM at 701 Maple about 7:00pm Sunday.  The man says they took his money from him by force after he was done at the ATM. No weapons were seen or implied.

The victim told police that the suspects also stole his wallet with more cash, credit cards and his ID.  He says one of the suspects tried to steal his watch as well, but it broke during the scuffle.

A police K-9 unit tracked the suspects a short distance, but was not able to find them.  Police think the suspects may have been waiting in the area before the robbery and if anyone saw two Hispanic teens, one in a gray hooded sweatshirt and the other in a black hooded sweatshirt in the area of 29th Street and Maple Avenue around 7:00pm Sunday, they should contact police.  A surveillance camera did catch an image of one of the suspects.
