(October 16, 2008) Ypsilanti Police are reporting that a resident on Gregory street on Ypsilanti’s Westside was bound and robbed at gun point in his apartment. The incident happened about 1:30a on Wednesday.

Police said the resident, an EMU student, reported that two black men were wearing bandannas over their faces and carrying handguns. The suspects took money and other items from the apartment.

Update 1 (1:12p October 16, 2008): YpsiNews received an email at 11:21a from Ypsilanti Police Chief Harshberger with additional information and a correction to the information originally released by Eastern Michigan. Harshberger said the robbery occurred at 1:30a and the victim did not report the robbery until some 12.5 hours to 2pm. Ypsinews originally reported the robbery occurred at 1:30p as that was the time stated in the release for Eastern Michigan. Harshberger also said the victim was involved in growing marijuana at the apartment and this appears to be a planned robbery of an illicit drug operation and not a random robbery. Harshberger says the investigation continues.
