Park police seek men who attacked residents

GROSSE POINTE PARK — At press time, the Grosse Pointe Park Public Safety Department was still searching for a pair of men wanted for assaulting a husband and wife during a home invasion at 7:43 p.m. Nov. 27 in the 1300 block of Grayton.

According to a police report, the male victim was attacked in the backyard, while the second suspect assaulted the wife after she surprised the suspect inside the home. The victims, an elderly couple, were both shoved to the ground; they were taken to a local hospital for observation, treated and released, said Park Public Safety Chief David Hiller.

“This is a very unusual situation for us,” Hiller said of the attack.

The suspects are said to have fled the scene through the backyard. The St. Clair Shores Police Department’s K-9 tracked the suspects for a couple of blocks before losing the scent. They remained at large as of press time, police said.

The suspects are described as follows: a 200-pound black male, about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, and a 220-pound black male age 20-30 who was about 6 feet 2 inches tall.

Hiller said the victims surprised the thieves, who fled before they took anything. At press time, he said police had collected evidence and sent it to the Michigan State Police crime lab for analysis.

Anyone with more information about this incident or the suspects is asked to call Park Public Safety at (313) 822-7400.
