Dearborn Resident Held at Gunpoint in Her Driveway

A Dearborn resident told police that she was held up at gunpoint in her own driveway on Jan. 3, according to Dearborn police reports.

The woman told police that she had just gotten home from work and grocery shopping at around 7:30 p.m. Thursday, and was busy unloading bags from her car into her house on the 22800 block of Sheridan.

As she stood at the back of her car, two men approached her—one brandishing a semi-automatic handgun and asking her, "Where's the money?"

The woman replied that she didn't have any money. A second man searched her pockets and got into her car, while the gun-toting suspect told her to get into the house. She did so, locking the door and proceeding to call the police.

By the time police arrived, the men were gone.

The woman said she was not sure if they took anything from her car, or which way the men went.

Dearborn police were able to identify two fresh sets of footprints in the snow, leading east toward Sussex Street. However, police were not able to trace the men any further.

The men were described as black males around the ages of 16-20, both around 5-foot-8 and with a thin build. Both were described as wearing dark clothing and black knit caps.
