'Got wrong girl' student told by assailant here

This story was published by The Ypsilanti Daily Pres on Saturday, May 25, 1929.

A man who said he was looking for a ‘Miss Pennington’ who broke up his sister’s home in Wyandotte, is being sought today, following an attack upon Miss Mary parker, Normal College student, Thursday night.

Miss Parker was walking on Sheridan Ave., towards her rooming home on that street, when accosted by a man who first asked her to go for a ride, then searched her purse, and finding no money there told her to go, threatening to blow out her brains if she talked. According to Miss Parker, he was armed.

Although too frightened at first to talk coherently, Miss Parker was able to give a description of the man and his car, but she had not obtained the license number. Before he let her go, he told her he was sorry, that he had made a mistake, and was really looking for a Miss Pennington who had made trouble in his sister’s family.

The description of the man had car and the story he told has been sent to the Wyandotte officers, in an effort to obtain further information.
