DETROIT (WWJ) The tragic story of a teen who initially said he was grabbed from a Detroit school and sexually assaulted by two strangers at an abandoned home is evolving.
And police have leads on the alleged perpetrators.
The Detroit Police Department’s Sex Crimes Unit updated the story with a statement that says, “This does not appear to be a random act, and the victim may have known the two male suspects.”
Investigators added they’ve identified a person of interest and are “actively searching for that person.” At the same time, police would not confirm a sexual assault had actually happened, saying the allegation is still being investigated.
The incident happened at 2 p.m. Thursday, when the 13-year-old said someone knocked on the door of his school in the area of Lakepointe and Courville and grabbed him when he answered the door. Neighbors later reportedly saw him stumbling down the street with his hands tied, and without pants.
Anyone has any information on this incident can call Sex Crimes at 313-596-1950 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP
