ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (WJBK) -

Surveillance video shows what police believe was the beginning of a robbery.

Early Friday morning, a doctor pulled up to a Harper Woods gas station near I-94 and parked his white Mercedes SUV at a pump before walking inside with wallet in hand.

Once inside, the doctor began to open his wallet. A man in a white T-shirt turned around multiple times and even let the doctor jump ahead of him in line. The man seemed to peer over the doctor's shoulder to get a better look at the cash he slid into his front shirt pocket before leaving the gas station.

Police said as the doctor pulled off, a grayish-blue Dodge Charger pulled off, as well. The men inside followed the doctor all the way to his St. Clair Shores home. He did not notice he was being followed until he saw a gun in his face.

"One of the black males was carrying a nickel-plated handgun, pointed it at him and they said to give up his money," said Gordon Carrier with St. Clair Shores Police.

"The first thing one of the suspects did was approach him, reach for his top pocket, pull out money, reached in his front pockets, tried to get whatever else he had, and then they fled on foot."

Police said the victim was robbed in his own driveway steps away from his front door.

The robbery was not the doctor's fault, but police said this should serve as a wake up call to everyone. Be aware of your surroundings.
