Last night, a domestic dispute at Anthony Wayne Drive Apartments ended with a person allegedly using a knife, Associate Director of Public Relations Tom Reynolds said.
“One of the person’s in the dispute allegedly used a knife, but there were no serious or sustained injuries, and the matter poses no danger to students,” he said.
Reynolds further said, “The Wayne State University police responded and took appropriate action.”
Freshmen Alex Hogge witnessed the event from his dorm-room window at Towers Residential Suites. Hogge said he saw lights coming out of his window and saw two police officers pull into Anthony Wayne Drive Apartments. He said both cops came out of their vehicles and ran into the apartment building.
Hogge said as they were running into the Anthony Wayne Drive Apartments, the police officers were holding their holsters.
“It looked like they were getting ready for something pretty bad. After that there were two more cars that pulled up, sirens blasting and lots of cops rushing into the building," Hogge said. "There were in the building for a long time, sadly I didn't see if they brought anyone out, but it was pretty spooky to watch nonetheless."
The incident is still under investigation, and this story will be updated when more information is released.
