Ann Arbor woman robbed at knifepoint outside her back door
A woman was robbed at knifepoint Sunday morning at the back door of her home in south Ann Arbor, police said.
At 11:30 a.m., the 57-year-old woman returned to her home near the intersection of Jay Lee Court and Champagne Drive, got out of her car and walked to the end of her driveway to pick up the newspaper, Ann Arbor police said.
She then walked to her house, and, as she was about to enter the back door, saw something out of the corner of her eye. She turned and saw a man holding a knife, police spokeswoman Lt. Renee Bush said. He demanded her purse, and she gave him some money from her wallet. He walked down the driveway and left the area, police said.
He was described as black, with a medium complexion. He was 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 18 to 20 years old with a thin build. He was clean-shaven. He was wearing a bright red T-shirt and black running pants.
