Deputies respond to attempted home invasion in Superior Township

By Julie Baker

Deputies from Superior Township are investigating an early Tuesday home invasion, according to a news release from the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office.

At about 1:15 a.m., deputies responded to the 9000 block of Mulberry Drive after a homeowner reported that someone attempted to break into their home.

The victim was asleep at home at the time of the incident and was awakened by noise from the intruder or intruders. The homeowner then called police. Investigators believe the suspect was scared away from the scene by residents or neighbors.

No property was reported stolen. No arrests have been made, and no suspect information was available.

The incident remains under investigation.

Congrats to residents/ and or neighbors. Glad to hear the intruder/intruders were scared off. I would have called 911 myself, but with gun in hand. I know my neighbors and appreciate them. (although in the country, there are 6 neighbors that watch out for each other) We have (vacation watch by our township police also) and they really do come out and circle the property and home for anything suspicious going on. How do I know?? Once from the alarm going off and my not answering the phone, and second because I had my suv backed up to their door. WCPD and MSP scared the heck out of me in the routine check. Yes, I was house watching.

It is bad in Ann Arbor. Get to know your neighbors, get their phone numbers, and get ready to defend yourself.

Yeah, getting to know your neighbors can be an important thing. People all over SE Michigan need to start looking out for each other and their property. This isn't just and Ypsi. thing anymore, thefts up in Ann Arbor and outlying areas as well. Be a good neighbor, keep your eyes open for others and contact police if anything seems suspicious.
