Police Report: Woman Threatened in Foodland Parking Lotdinos02sidelogo

(Lt. William Wilson, Ferndale Police Department, Jan. 17, 2013)

On 01/16/13, Ferndale police responded to the Foodland Parking Lot (600 W. 9 Mile) on a report of an attempted robbery of a 67 year old woman. The call originally came from a third party witness. Later, the modern taxvictim came to the police station to make a report.

According to the witness and the victim:

At about 10:30 a.m. the victim was loading groceries into her vehicle when she was approached by a black male (approximately 30 years old, clean shaven and well dressed). The suspect came in a maroon colored mini-van (make or model unknown). He asked the lady for directions, went to his van, and retrieved a sign that said he had a gun. He then told the woman not to scream.

Another car pulled into the lot and parked next to the victim, causing the suspect to go back to the van and drive away.

If anybody has information about this incident, they should contact Ferndale Police. 248-541-3650
