Ann Arbor: Does “Cool” Mean “Never Boring”?

From Tuesday’s Ann Arbor News:

A 34-year-old man admitted he punched a pedestrian in the face in Liberty Plaza Park in downtown Ann Arbor Monday because he didn’t like the look on his face, city police said.

The 53-year-old victim said he was walking through the plaza at 7:40 a.m. when he was suddenly punched by a man who didn’t say a word. A passerby called police, and the victim pointed out the man who struck him, reports said.

The suspect told police that he didn’t like the look on the man’s face and he felt intimidated, so he punched him. The man was arrested on assault charges.

From yesterday’s Ann Arbor News:

A 19-year-old Ypsilanti man told several people waiting for a city bus that he planned to rob them, then ran from police when they tried to question him, Ann Arbor Police said.

The incident occurred at the Blake Transit Center in the 300 block of South Fourth Avenue at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday. An officer stationed there said he was approached by several people who pointed out the suspect and said he was telling people waiting for an AATA bus that he would rob them, reports said.
