Recent crime from the Ann Arbor News:

“Woman reports peeping tom

An Ann Arbor woman said a man was peeking through her blinds into the bedroom of her home early Thursday, city police reported.

The 20-year-old woman, who lives in the 500 block of Packard Street, called police at 8:27 a.m. after she saw the man standing outside, reports said. He ran off before she could provide a good description to police and was not found in the area, reports said.”

And this from today’s paper:

“Two robbers take man’s cell phone

Two men escaped on foot after robbing a man of his cell phone early Saturday, University of Michigan police said. The robbery occurred around 2:30 a.m. at the parking structure at 525 Church St., said Diane Brown, spokeswoman for U-M facilities and operations. A man was approached by two suspects who demanded he give them “whatever you got,” Brown said. The victim gave the two men his cell phone, and they fled on foot without brandishing a weapon, Brown said. U-M has issued a crime alert in an attempt to capture the two men.

Police break up melee outside union

Officers from the University of Michigan and Ann Arbor police broke up a melee outside of the Michigan Union early Saturday after a dance in the union ballroom was shut down.

The annual dance, sponsored by the National Panhellenic Council, was shut down about 1 a.m. after a fight broke out in the Michigan Ballroom, said Diane Brown, spokesperson for U-M facilities and operations.

Officers from the U-M Department of Public Safety asked people to leave the union, but multiple fights then erupted outside the union and across State Street, Brown said. Police attempted to break up the fights and some people resisted. One person, whom Brown said was not a U-M student, was arrested for assaulting a police officer.

Brown said no alcohol was served at the event, attended by about 500 people, and there we no reported injuries. “That’s fortunate, given the severity of the situation (outside),” she said.

Brown said additional arrests are possible as police investigate the cause of the melee, as well as whether guest policies were followed at the annual event.”
