Detroit po­lice seek­ing men sus­pected of rob­bing cou­ples

Cape Breton Post - - WORLD -

DETROIT — Po­lice in Detroit are search­ing for men who al­legedly robbed two young cou­ples at gun­point in sep­a­rate at­tacks two hours apart and gang-raped the women while forc­ing the male vic­tims to watch. The at­tacks hap­pened Thurs­day night along a ma­jor street on Detroit’s north­west side, po­lice said. In each case, the cou­ples were out walk­ing when their at­tack­ers, armed with hand­guns, ap­proached them. “It’s hor­ri­fy­ing,’’ po­lice Deputy Chief Charles Fitzger­ald told re­porters Fri­day. Six men took part in the first at­tack and all six of them raped the woman, Fitzger­ald said. There had been no ar­rests as of Sun­day af­ter­noon, po­lice Sgt. Cas­san­dra Lewis told The As­so­ci­ated Press.
