Armed robbery reported early Saturday in Ypsilanti
A 20-year-old Ypsilanti man told police he lost consciousness after an armed robbery in Depot Town early Saturday, before waking up several hours later and asking a friend to take him to a hospital.
The victim told police he was on East Cross Street walking home from a party at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, when a group of at least four men "jumped" him.
The man told police he was punched and kicked by three black men, then a white man about 21 years old with a dark goatee cut him with a knife "and attempted to stab him in the back twice," according to police.
The men then removed cash from his wallet and threw the wallet back at him, he told police.
He lost consciousness at the end of the assault, the victim reported to officers. When he awakened several hours later, he asked a friend to drive him to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. Police were called to the hospital to take the report at about 10 a.m.
Three marks were visible on the man's shirt, but barely penetrated his skin, according to police.
Officers said the investigation is on-going. They ask anyone with information to call 734-482-9878.
