Lost Farmington Hills girl assaulted in Detroit, police say
Detroit Police are working to find a man accused of sexually abusing a young girl who sought help to return to Farmington Hills last weekend.
The victim told investigators she left her home in the suburb of Oakland County on Sunday and walked for about two hours because the girl did not know her whereabouts, police said in a statement.
She stopped at Eight Mile and Grand River near Detroit’s West Side, where the man stopped and asked if the message said the girl needed help.
She told officers that she got into his car and quickly realized it was going in the wrong direction, but she was unable to escape, authorities said.
The man drove to a house near Berg Road and Trojan in Detroit and attacked them, police reported.
The girl fled after the man left the room. A good Samaritan found her walking and called 911. She was taken to the Michigan Children’s Hospital.
Detroit officials alerted Farmington Hills Police, who had a missing person report on the girl.
The suspect is said to have driven a white or gray Jeep Renegade 2015-2021.
A description of the man was not available on Tuesday evening.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-2250. Crime Stoppers of Michigan accepts anonymous tips at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
