Held up by three tramps

This story was carried by the Ypsilanti Daily Press on Monday, January 11, 1909.

As Will Kent of Miles street was returnting home last Saturday night he was attacked by three unknown men, betten in the head and all his money taken from his cloths, a total of about $4.30. The three men made their getaway. Kent had been downtown SAturday night and was teturning home about 10:30. He went out Prospect street, crossed the bridge on that street and just past the bridge cut through a vacant lot to reach his home on Miles street.

It was at this point that he was set on by the three, knock in the head, and robbed. When the men got away Kent, who was stunned, managed to crawl on his hands and knees to his home and was found bhere by his wife and daughter when they reach home a little later.

Today Kent is better but is not yet able to sit up or go down town to identfy the three suspects who are in jail. These three were cptured yesterday by the police force near the Michigan Central ststion and are being held on suspicion.
