(DETROIT NEWS) — A photograph snapped by a citizen and distributed to the media led to the arrest of two police officers who allegedly robbed and assaulted two citizens last week, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Monday.
The two men — one a sergeant and 20-year veteran of the Detroit Police Department; the other holding the same rank in St. Clair Shores — allegedly wore their badges around their necks and drew their department-issued pistols on July 21, when police say they robbed two men at an east-side gas station. One of the victims was assaulted, Craig said.
“It wasn’t until a photograph was sent to the media that someone investigating the case recognized him as a Detroit Police employee,” Craig said.
Dear Reader, our hearts are deeply grieved by the
ongoing devastation in Iraq, and through this we have been compelled to
take a stand at the gates of hell against the enemy who came to kill and
destroy. Bibles for Iraq is a project to put Arabic and Kurdish audio
Bibles into the hands of Iraqi refugees—most of whom are illiterate and
who have never heard the gospel. Will you stand with us and make a
donation today to this important effort to bless the Iraqi people?Click here to send a Bible to a refugee >>
