Deputies looking for man accused of beating, robbing Belleville man
Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies are searching for a 21-year-old man who they say helped beat and rob a 20-year-old Belleville man, sending him to the hospital Sunday night.
Spokesman Derrick Jackson said deputies responded at 10:20 p.m. Sunday to Textile Road and Bridge Road for a report of a disorderly group about to fight. Deputies arrived on the scene and found the Belleville man lying on the side of the road with cuts on his face and back, Jackson said.
A woman had called the police and scared off the rest of the men, staying with the Belleville man until deputies arrived. About five or six men had been beating him up, Jackson said.
Huron Valley Ambulance took the man to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.
Three of the suspects have been arrested, but the 21-year-old man still is at large. A warrant filed for his arrest shows police want him for two counts of armed robbery, two counts of assault with intent to do bodily harm less than murder and two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, according to court records.
AnnArbor.com is not releasing the man’s name because of the ongoing investigation into the incident.
