Detroit police said they have arrested the suspect in connection to the robbery, carjacking and kidnapping of two grandmothers at MotorCity Casino early Thursday morning.
According to Sgt. Cassandra Lewis, with the help of MotorCity Casino and Michigan State Police, they identified the suspect, located his place of employment and arrested him around 3:30 p.m.Saturday.
Police say the two grandmothers were leaving the casino when they were confronted on the roof of the parking garage by a man with a gun.
He physically forced them into the car, robbed them and forced them to drive to a field near Schoolcraft on the west side of the city.
“I thought we were going to die,” says victim Janet Dupree.
The two victims, who are also sisters, were left without money in a neighborhood they didn’t know. A good Samaritan helped them get to a police precinct.
