Blind man guides Michigan State Police to robbery suspects - wsbt.com

FENNVILLE, Mich. (AP) — State police say a 64-year-old blind man enabled the capture of two western Michigan cousins who robbed him by giving investigators

a detailed description of their voices and other observations.


Sgt. Matthew Doan tells The Grand Rapids Press that 20-year-old David Williams and his 24-year-old Robert Williams were arrested Tuesday on charges of armed

robbery, home invasion, unlawful imprisonment and interfering with electronic communications.


Doan says the robbery happened Tuesday at the victim's home near Fennville.


The sergeant says investigators were able to track down the two Pullman residents based on the "amazing amount of detail" the victim supplied.


Doan says one of the robbers had a knife during the robbery.


The suspects were in the Allegan County jail Wednesday, and it's unknown if they have lawyers.
