Over the past few weeks, at least nine businesses in the Gordon Square/Detroit Shoreway neighborhood have been burglarized, with five businesses experiencing break-ins in the last four days.

The Big Egg was broken into on Aug. 7, Frank's Falafel House on Aug. 8, and Gordon Square Market on Aug. 18. After a two day hiatus, the burglaries continued on Aug. 20 at Stockyard Meats and Georgio's Oven Fresh Pizza Co., Blazing Saddle Cycle on Aug. 21 (they also reported as burglarized on Aug. 6), Banter Beer and Wine on Aug. 22 (with the robbers also attempting to hit The Deli at 74th and Franklin), concluding with a break-in at Spice Kitchen + Bar last night on Aug. 23.

The Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization is working closely with the Second District Community Relations Committee to identify the perpetrators and ensure businesses are secure.

All of the crimes have followed similar patterns with break-ins occurring usually between the hours of midnight and 4 a.m. by either breaking glass or forcing open a door. The perpetrators have been identified as two males, but sometimes only one male, wearing hoods tightly around the face and ransacking the place. Cash boxes, liquor, iPads and cameras are the most commonly targeted item.



Granular images from security cameras can be seen below. If you or others have any information that may lead us to their capture, please contact 2nd District Detective Bureau at 216-623-5218.
