Three men were arrested early Sunday morning after they allegedly entered a house in the 23500 block of Manor Drive and held a resident at gunpoint during what police say was not a random incident.
Police responded to the area, which is in the Swan Creek mobile home community, at 4:37 a.m. on a call of an assault that had just occurred.
Sumpter Township police initially assisted with the response to the house.
When police arrived, a resident told them that multiple men entered her house and held a person at gunpoint.
She said no shots were fired and that the men had fled the house before police arrived.
A few minutes later, the men were arrested after police pulled over their car near the intersection of Judd and Clark Roads.
One weapon was recovered by police during the arrests.
A 27-year-old St. Clair Shores man, a 28-year-old man from Chesterfield, and a 27-year-old Romeo man are being held in the Huron Township jail pending possible charges from the Wayne County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
“It is important for our residents to know that this was not a random crime. There was a relationship between at least one of the suspects and at least one of the occupants of the residence where the assault occurred. We continue to investigate, but we have no reason at this time to believe that this is related to any other crimes in the area or that there is any danger to the public.”
Robbins said more information will be provided following an arraignment and that the investigation is ongoing.
