Today at approximately 6:30am WCSO Deputies were called out to the 1000 Block of Studebaker in Ypsilanti Twp. for a Suspicious Incident which later turns out to be an Attempt Robbery.

An Elderly woman exits her home to her backyard to feed the birds when the suspect wearing a “Batman” mask slowly walks up to her and puts his arm around her shoulders and gently guides her towards the back door. He asked her if her husband was still sleeping and when she tells him that he was in the bedroom with a loaded shotgun. The suspect quickly runs towards the locked gate and jumps over the fence. As he runs away he tells the woman that he was sorry and just needed money to buy his kids some food. She swiftly walked back into the house and told her husband what had happened and then they called 911.

A canine track of the area was conducted which lead northbound towards Tyler Rd. The canine lost the suspect’s scent on Tyler Rd. and the track ended there.
