Deputies investigate purse snatching in Ypsilanti Township

By Lee Higgins

A woman was knocked to the ground by two men Sunday night and her purse was taken in the 1300 block of East Cross Street in Ypsilanti Township, Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies said.

The men left the area on foot after the 5:15 p.m. incident, a sheriff's department media summary said. The woman was not injured. So far, no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information can call the sheriff's department tip line at (734) 973-7711.

Go to class, practice at the range, get your CCW permit and put a stop to this type of nonsense.

This while that A2PD has a "person of interest" who has suddenly stopped committing physical crimes against female victims and has yet to be apprehended. YPSI bashing at its finest.

For Ypsilanti, this equals the Ann Arbor story about a lady who had vegetable plants stolen, not news anymore.

Someone is knocked down and robbed and all you want to do is make nasty remarks about their town or neighborhood? Why are people so darn cranky today?

Broad daylight, Sunday afternoon.... geeze. SO glad I moved away from Ypsi, and eventually left EMU as well!

Nothing much has changed, and we don't miss you - in fact, if you wouldn't have pointed it out, we never would have noticed....

if i lived in Ypsilanti I would carry a 45 at all times

45's are so outdated, they have things called Ipods nowadays ;)

It probably would have been in your purse....

Duly noted, Cat. Please just stay out of my neighborhood.

What a damn shame, still day light and she gets knocked down and purse taken. Seems like somebody should have seen this happening. I'm so glad the woman wasn't injured.
