Pizza driver assaulted

A Domino’s Pizza driver was assaulted Dec. 9 in Lot NW41 (off McIntyre) after making a delivery. Three males with small baseball bats demanded the driver give up his cash. The suspects then fled the scene through the woods. The driver returned to the Domino’s store to file a report. This follows a similar incident the week before in Ann Arbor. Domino’s Pizza is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons involved in this robbery. Call the Department of Public Safety (DPS) Tip Line, (734) 763-9180, with any information regarding the robbery.

CCRB larcenies solved

Two individuals not affiliated with the University, who were arrested by Ann Arbor Police Dec. 6 on other charges, have been connected with at least six recent larcenies in the Central Campus Recreation Building (CCRB). All of the larcenies were of personal property that had been left unattended.
