Woman punches gun-wielding attacker
A woman fought off a gun-wielding man who tried to force her to take him somewhere in a car Sunday evening, Ypsilanti police said.
The woman told police a man came up to her and pointed a gun at her in the 200 block of North Huron Street in Ypsilanti shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday. He demanded she drive him somewhere, but she refused, punching the man and yelling for help, police said in a media summary.
The man ran, firing the gun twice, police said. The weapon was not loud, and police said it might have been a BB gun.
Police searched for the man but weren’t able to find him.
