3 Arrested for Armed Robbery of Dearborn Resident
The men are accused of taking a cell phone at gunpoint on Saturday.
Dearborn police on Wednesday announced the arrest of three Detroit men for the armed robbery of a Dearborn resident.
Michael Lee Williams, 17; Jonathan Dewayne Colvin, 18; and Joshua Isaiah Johnson, 23, have been charged with armed robbery stemming from an incident on the 7800 block of Indiana Street in Dearborn on Saturday night.
Williams and Colvin were also charged with felony firearm use, and Colvin was charged as a habitual offender, second offense notice.
All three men are Detroit residents.
According to police, two Dearborn residents were sitting on the porch of their home on Indiana Street on Saturday night when two men approached them, brandishing handguns and demanding the cell phone one person was holding. The men then got into a vehicle and drove off.
The victims immediately called Dearborn police, who were able to locate the vehicle to a party store in Detroit, where they arrested Williams, Colvin and Johnson. Police also confiscated two handguns, and recovered a cell phone from the men.
All three were arraigned in front of Judge Mark Somers in the 19th District Court on Tuesday. Bond was set at $250,000 cash for each defendant.
Their preliminary examination will be held Friday, Sept. 21, at 9 a.m. in the courthouse.
Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad thanked the involved residents for their help in locating the suspects, and noted that they are also suspected of involvement in additional armed robberies in Detroit.
"With the help of the victims, our officers arrested multiple violent offenders who were likely active in several nearby communities," Haddad said in a statement. "We're pleased to see this type of arrest that results in a safer quality of life for not only Dearborn residents but those in surrounding communities as well."
