SOUTH LYON, Mich. - The family of 23-year-old Brian Randolph says the only reason the Oakland County man robbed a bank was to pay for his young daughter's chemo treatments. Randolph was arrested August 14th, two days after police say he robbed a Vibe Credit Union in South Lyon. His one year old daughter's insurance was abruptly canceled, and with no money, his family says the desperate father tried robbing a bank. His girlfriend tells 7 Action News, "I'm not sure what he was thinking at that point, but at the end of the day the only thing I can think about is him trying to take care of his child." Little Brailynn Randolph goes to chemo every four weeks, as she battles retinoblastoma, a form of eye cancer. Police say surveillance photos show Randolph giving the teller a note, also indicating he had a gun on August 12th, but never showed one. His aunt tells us, "The only thing he kept telling me is I want to be the man I'm supposed to be. I want to provide for my child." Randolph is back in court Wednesday morning for bank robbery.
