(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.
