LINCOLN PARK, Mich. (WJBK) -

The manhunt is on for two men who pulled an armed robbery in broad daylight in Lincoln Park. One fired a shot just inches from a terrified desk clerk's head.

Click on the video player to hear her account of the ordeal in Ron Savage's report.

Renesha Tames is haunted by her day at work. It was 11:30am Friday, Jan. 17 when two suspects boldly walked into the Super 8 motel in Lincoln Park. At least one had a gun. They came in through the unlocked doorway, pointed a gun and punched Tames in the mouth with the weapon. The suspect fired a shot that narrowly missed Renesha then he ordered her to the safe.

"Once he hit me in the face, that's when the gun went off," the victim told Fox 2. "I didn't know where the bullet went or anything. That's when the guy took me over there and told me to give him all the money out of the cash register."

Both suspects tried to cover their faces with bandanas. They stole about $200 cash. Both were caught on camera. The two young black men are both about 6 feet tall, one with black Air Jordan sneakers, the other wearing white sneakers. The pistol was silver plated. Police took the fired round out of an office copy machine. Renesha was not seriously hurt. The 23-year-old has not returned to work.

The suspects also stole the victim's purse. If you have any information, call Lincoln Park police or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP

    Dad accidentally delivers baby into toilet

    A Connecticut baby has arrived with a splash, right into a toilet bowl. The baby's father, David Davis, tells WVIT-TV that he was forced to deliver the newborn in the bathroom of his West Haven home Friday morning after his wife, Lillie, went into labor. He says the baby slipped through his hands during the delivery, but luckily went into the water. He says she began crying and it was the best sound he'd ever heard.
