Two arrested in abduction, armed robbery
Two suspects have been arrested for their involvement in Tuesday’s abduction and armed robbery now being called a “setup” by police.

According to a report issued by Eastern Michigan University police Wednesday, one of the reported victims and a second subject were arrested by police.

The incident occurred at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, when two EMU students reported they had been held at gunpoint and forced to drive to area cash machines to withdraw money.

The students, who are both 18-years-old men, were stopped at the intersection of Cross and Ballard streets when a man jumped into their vehicle with a silver revolver.

The students were able to withdraw $300 and dropped the man off near Washtenaw Avenue and Hewitt Road, according to Ypsilanti police.

Police said one of the students returned to campus and called police an hour later. The second student drove to his home in the down-river area. The victim from the down-river area refused to come in for an interview and said he would call police later.

Both EMU and Ypsilanti police are investigating the incident. Ypsilanti police said both suspects are being held at the Washtenaw County Jail, awaiting arraignment.
