Armed robbery, Carjacked

On December 01, 2016 my mothers next door neighbor was leaving for work at 5am when he was aprroched by four black men. They held a gun up to his head, took his wallet, keys and car. Then pistol whooped him and threw him to the ground.... This poor man is in his 60's he's such a sweet guy. It happened on 81st and Kilpatrick.

  • First the attempted kidnap and then this

  • Melly Homeowner

    Unfortunately this is happening more and more on our neighborhood. My neighbors car was also stolen last week from his driveway at 7am. We have to be more careful of our surroundings, we can't wait to be the next victim. If any one sees anything suspicious including vehicles just parked around our block please call 911 one person may not make a difference but if we all call and report there are more chances we are heard.
