Can You Say Assault and Battery, and a Theft, too. A 16-year-old victim on Cambria Street was dropped off at his home after school and while walking up his driveway, he was suddenly jumped by a 16-year-old suspect from Troy that he knew and the suspect’s friend. The victim was punched and thrown to the ground, causing injuries to his right eye, knees, and pain in his ribs. The second unknown suspect grabbed the victim’s backpack and stole it. The backpack contained the victim’s house keys and homework. The police are on this one.
But are the tools for sale on Craig’s List? Driver of a red 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche Pick-up parked the work vehicle outside his residence on Breeze Hill Place with his job-site tools in it, which included a nail gun, saws, an air compressor, and miscellaneous hand tools. When he awoke the next day for work, he found the vehicle stolen. He indicated the vehicle is owned by his wife and there are no issues between the two nor anyone else. The vehicle also may not have been locked with the keys left inside – never a good idea. The vehicle was located by the Detroit Police Department on 10/24/2016 at 4:11 PM. The vehicle had been abandoned and had multiple damage to it including a sideswipe, right rear panel damage, broken taillights, and the mirrors were broke. The vehicle keys were not left behind and there was no damage to the ignition.
