13-year-old robbed of smartphone at gunpoint
A 13-year-old Superior Township boy was held up at gunpoint and robbed of his iPhone Sunday night, police said.
The boy was walking home from a friend's house in the 1800 block of Parklawn in Superior Township just before 10 p.m. when a man approached him and brandished a handgun, according to the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office.
The man told the boy to "empty his pockets," Sgt. Geoff Fox said.
The boy put his iPhone on the ground and the man told him to start walking, which he did.
"(The boy) turned around and the suspect was running away," Fox said.
The suspect is described as a black man, about 6 foot to 6 foot 2 inches tall, heavy set with long dreadlocks.
Police continue to investigate.
