UPDATED: 2 Arrested After SWAT Team Swarms Wyandotte House

A SWAT team descended upon Electric Street near Walnut in Wyandotte on Tuesday morning.

A man and a woman were arrested Tuesday morning after a SWAT team descended upon a house on Electric Street near Walnut in Wyandotte.

Wyandotte police assisted the Southgate Police Department with an armed robbery investigation on Tuesday, after a man was robbed early Tuesday by three suspects in Southgate, Wyandotte Police Chief Daniel Grant said.

Southgate police tied the people to a home in the 2200 block of Electric in Wyandotte, Grant said. Two of the three were inside the house.

The Downriver SWAT team was called in to assist. Officers swarmed the house after the two suspects barricaded themselves inside.

“Eventually we were able to persuade them to surrender, which they did peacefully," Grant said.

Arrested were a 21-year-old Wyandotte man and his girlfriend, a 26-year-old from Woodhaven, Grant said.

Police are still searching for the third person.

Thanks Jason - I know you're doing the best you can and since I don't read the paper, I enjoy reading the Patch - what I don't read I can delete and it doesn't lay around the house waiting to jump into the trash can. Seems a lot of 2 cities' employees were used for an armed robbery - must be more to the story. Georgine

Phyllis, calm down!

Do you realize that unnecessary drama and worry DOES happen when something is incorrectly reported? I'm not criticizing Jason. I think he does a great job with the Patch and I enjoy reading it. I understand that in a situation like that you take what you can get, but an incorrect "fact" was released and yes, that's going to bring negative comments. I don't envy journalists one bit. They've got a very difficult job. To the person who's comment was deleted but made it's way to my inbox: You+are = you're. Your= possession. A for effort though.

Another EPIC FAIL for wyandotte patch! Not only was this article just plain sloppy (see Phyllis's comments) but really bad reporting as well. Having grown up in the downriver area and now live in a large city out of state, media tends to treat what police tell them as gospel truth and do not follow-up or question what 'police sources' tell them. This situation ended up being completely bungled by police and media and now who knows what really happened? Furthermore, Wyandotte Patch did NOT publish a follow-up reporting on how these 'suspects' were actually released the next day with no charges. See story in the News Herald: http://www.thenewsherald.com/articles/2012/10/24/news/doc508854fbc10a3813629970.txt Now THAT is actually a story? Why did Police initiate a SWAT situation at this house if no one was charged? What was their evidence? Who did they think was involved? Who were the Police involved? When did Police discover they were wrong? Again, the point of this website is advertisement clicks, plain and simple. That's all patch.com's owner AOL cares about...aggressive advertisement and news is second-fiddle. Wyandotte Patch's investment in capital and quality and quantity of human resources certainly reflects that.
