DETROIT (WWJ) – Police are hoping the public can help identify a third suspect wanted in connection with a home invasion and assault of a 86-year-old Detroit woman.
Police say the crimes occurred last Tuesday, February 9, around 1:40 a.m. as the woman was sleeping inside her home on Longfellow Street near Woodward Avenue.
According to police, three suspects broke into the residence, ransacked the home and assaulted the woman. After taking miscellaneous items from the home, the suspects fled the scene.
Two of the suspects were identified and taken into police custody on Friday, Feb. 12. Both are now facing charges that include home invasion, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and felon in possession.
Investigators still need help identifying the third suspect. He’s described as a black male with a medium complexion, approximately 15- to 21-years old, 5’6″ tall and 130 lbs. At the time, he was wearing a hooded sweatshirt with a brown vest and blue jeans.
Anyone who recognizes the suspect or who has any other information is urged to contact police at 313-596-1040 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
