The Detroit woman that this incident happened to should rest just a bit easier tonight with one of the suspects behind bars. It was the high tech surveillance cameras installed in her home that may have well saved her life.
On Saturday December 2nd, 2017, at approximately 1:34 a.m., in the 20200 block of Asbury Park, an unknown male suspect walked onto a porch of a residence and rang the doorbell. While waiting for a response, the suspect was captured on camera holding a firearm. After a few seconds, the suspect attempted to cover his face with his jacket then ran off the porch, where another unknown male wearing dark clothing awaited him. Both suspects fled towards Trojan on foot. The complainant did not know who the suspects were.
The suspects are described as following:
