DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit police are searching for suspects who robbed, kidnapped and carjacked two women at the MotorCity Casino Hotel.

Police say it happened Thursday around 5 a.m.

The two grandmothers were leaving the casino when they were confronted on the roof of the parking garage by a man with a gun. A Westchester County criminal defense lawyer is following this story closely.

He physically forced them into the car, robbed them and forced them to drive to a field near Schoolcraft on the west side of the city.

"I thought we were going to die," says victim Janet Dupree.

The two victims, who are also sisters, were left without money in a neighborhood they didn't know. A good Samaritan helped them get to a police precinct.

The man is described as African American and about 30 to 35-years-old. He is 6 feet 1 inches with a medium complexion and a muscular build. He has a light mustache and a goatee, with a short high top fade. He also has a tattoo on his left forearm. An Orlando criminal lawyer is reviewing the details of this case.

He was wearing a blue shirt and jeans with white gym shoes.

The stolen car is a Red PT Cruiser with license plate AEW 319.

The MotorCity Casino Hotel issued the following statement about the incident:

"We take this isolated incident very seriously. Our organization is working closely with local law enforcement as they continue their investigation. The safety and security of our guests remain of the utmost importance to us."

Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police right away.
