$10,000 CASH REWARD

On Friday night, July 13, 2012, after 11 p.m., 61-year old Ann Dawson had fallen asleep on her living room sofa at 8770 East Road in Lakeside, Michigan. She awakened to see a man dressed completely in black.  He struck her in the head with a gun and demanded money.  The suspect struck her multiple times in the head and bound her wrists and legs.  He dragged her up the stairs, breaking bones in her wrist and arm in the process.  Mrs. Dawson is recovering, but had to undergo multiple surgeries. 

The suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of money, but enough that those who know him may have noticed a sudden cash flow. 

Although he wore a mask, Mrs. Dawson could tell he was a white male with large brown eyes, possibly in his twenties, about 5`7" with a thin build.

Through fundraising efforts, the family has raised a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in this case.  As with all rewards, this will be paid in cash, completely anonymously.

In the second incident, three armed suspects confronted the victim as he lay in bed, shortly after midnight.  They made reference to coming back to get what they missed the first time.  They dragged the man out of bed and hit him in the head and back demanding to know the combination of a safe he had on the property.  The victim refused at first, but then the suspects tortured him by burning him until he gave the information.
