A 17-year-old from Warren remained in police custody after he allegedly confronted a resident in a home near 11 Mile and Schoenherr, put his hands on the woman’s throat and then fled early on Aug. 21.
According to Detective. Sgt. Stephen Mills of the Warren Police Department, officers were called to the 13800 block of Grey at about 6:25 a.m. after a 39-year-old resident said she encountered an intruder.
“She said she was in the shower when she heard a noise,” Mills said. The woman told police she walked into the hallway and saw a shadow just before the confrontation.
The victim said the suspect grabbed her by the neck with both hands and demanded money. She reportedly said, “Don’t kill me,” and the man fled the home.
Described as white, wearing a white T-shirt, red shorts and red shoes, the teen allegedly rode his Mongoose bike from the home into the rear yard of a house across the street, where he pretended to be asleep on a bench.
That’s where Warren police apprehended him.
The suspect was unarmed, and nothing was taken from the home. Mills said the woman was not seriously harmed.
“There were some small abrasions on the left side of her neck,” Mills said.
The teen apparently entered the house through a window and fled through a sliding door.
The suspect, who reportedly lives on nearby Bradner, remained held pending an expected arraignment on Aug. 22. He could face a felony charge of first-degree home invasion, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
