Neighbors of Imogene Anton and Bernice Green, who were robbed and beaten inside their homes Sept. 9 walked the streets days following knocking on doors and passing out literature to help find the elderly women’s attackers.
Anton, 90, was hospitalized following the attack, where she was struck with an object causing her to fall to the floor, according to a police alert.
Community activist Malik Shabazz of the Marcus Garvey Movement organized neighbors to pass out literature with a description of the three attackers. They were joined by the Detroit 300 Community Action Team. Additional street and car patrols have been planned in the west side neighborhood off Pingree and Linwood, until the attackers are found.
Green, 83, joined her neighbors as they formed a unity circle in prayer in front of the women’s two-family flat. Anyone with information can call DPD at 313.696.5240 or Crime Stoppers at 1.800.SPEAKUP.
