|DETROIT POLICE CRIME ADVISORY
*Unknown perpetrators conducting Home Invasions targeting elderly individuals
Method of Operation:
Beware of perpetrators who are targeting elderly individuals that live or are found to be alone in their residence.
The perpetrators talk the elderly individuals into allowing them to enter the home; on a couple of occasions the perpetrators have identified themselves as Police Officers. Once inside the home the perpetrators assault and rob the elderly individual. In one instance we believe the perpetrators may be responsible for a fatal assault of an 88 year old resident.
What to do:
If you live alone or are at home alone and someone whom you do not know comes to your door please do the following:
1. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR
