Police Question Man After Arguing in Parking Lot of Preschool at Temple Beth El
(Bloomfield Township Police, Dec. 3, 2022)
On December 2, 2022 the Bloomfield Township Police Department responded to the Temple Beth El at 7400 Telegraph Road for a report of a suspicious subject.
A male subject was observed in the parking lot of the preschool arguing about the support of Israel. Security at the Temple Beth El was immediately alerted and responded, as did the Bloomfield Township Police Department.
As the subject exited the Temple’s parking lot, Bloomfield Township Police Department initiated a traffic stop on the subject and identified him. The subject was released from the scene pending further investigation and was advised not to return to the Temple Beth El.
Bloomfield Township Police Department provided and will continue to provide extra patrol at the Temple Beth El.

We ask anyone that may have witnessed the incident or has information for the police to contact 248-433-7755. The Bloomfield Township Police Department stands with our Jewish community, and we condemn the language that was used.
