WIXOM (WWJ) – Police in Wixom are looking for a trio of teenage robbers who forced their way into an apartment earlier this week and assaulted a resident.
The incident occurred around 11 p.m. Monday at the Village Apartments on Thornwood Street, near Beck Road and Pontiac Trail.
According to police, two males in their late teens forcibly entered an apartment and demanded money from the victim. When the victim told the suspects that he had no money, the suspects allegedly assaulted him. Police say a third male then entered the apartment and pointed what was believed to be a long gun at the victim.
Police say the robbers took “an undisclosed piece of property” from the victim and fled the scene on foot. The victim was treated at an area hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
One of the suspects is described as a short, clean-shaven black male with a dark complexion and a “buzz cut.” Another suspect is described as a slightly taller, clean-shaven black male with a lighter complexion and a curly afro. The third suspect, the gunman, is described as a black male with collar-length dreadlocks.
Police say they have interviewed several witness and will continue to investigate the incident.
A forensic artist from the Michigan State Police assisted the Wixom Police Department by completing two composite sketches. The victim reports that these were the two teens that assaulted him on the night of the incident. The victim was unable to provide a detailed description of the gunman.
Anyone with information on the crime is asked to contact Wixom police at 248-624-6114.
