(WJBK) -

Two Emergency Medical Technicians from a private ambulance company in Lincoln Park, Concord EMS, tell Fox 2 their ambulance was robbed while they were helping a patient inside a home. The home was located on Lakepoint Street on Detroit's east side.

Elizabeth Reno, one of the EMT workers, says she was missing her wallet, all identification and her checkbook. Her partner's backpack was also missing, containing a cell phone and a GPS.

Reno still had her cell phone so she says she called her partner's phone. No one answered initially, but then she says someone called back.

"They called back and I answered the phone, and I said 'Hey can I have my stuff back?' He's like, 'I don't know what you're talking about. This guy just sold me these two bags for six bucks,'" Reno tells Fox 2's Maurielle Lue.

Reno says they made an arrangement to meet around the corner, but no one ever came to meet her.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
