The Dexter branch of the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office dealt with four incidents over the last week.
Deputies were called to the 12600 block of Oak Hill Road, Saturday, January 30th, at 10:52 a.m., when the caller received a series of threatening phone messages. A Sheriff’s spokesperson said that the threats were vague. They are in the process of tracing the caller.
A business on the 11400 block of North Territorial Road was robbed at gun point by a white male, in his 20s. He is estimated to be around 5 foot 9 inches tall, and had a mask, gloves and a hand gun. At 8:40 p.m. Sunday, January 31st, he entered the business and demanded money. He left with an unspecified amount and fled on foot. Deputies have no suspects at this time.
There was an attempted robbery at a business on the 5600 block of Jackson Road Sunday, January 31st, at 11:30 p.m. The suspect entered the store and walked to the back. When the clerk was in the process of closing up, deputies say that he saw the man near the back, by the office door, with a florescent tube light bulb in hand. Deputies say that the man threatened the clerk, demanding a cell phone and access to the office. The clerk refused and the unidentified man fled on foot. A sheriff’s spokesman described the suspect as a African American male, around 5 foot 11, and 250 pounds.
Deputies were called to the 4100 block of Eyrie Drive at 5:50 p.m., February 1st. This was for a domestic violence call, which involves a juvenile, so deputies refused to make any further comment.
