ROMULUS, Mich. (WJBK) -

A 25-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the robbery and sexual assault of a 72-year-old Romulus woman.

Detectives executed several search warrants including one at the now-arrested suspect's residence, police say.

On Sep. 10, Romulus Police responded to a call on the 28000 block of Riverbridge on a home invasion.  The victim says a man climbed a 6-foot gate then entered her home through an unlocked patio door after she let her dogs out.

The man appeared to have been holding a black object in his hand that was approximately six to eight inches in length. The suspect ransacked the home, took some jewelry then proceeded to sexually assault the woman, police say.

She shared her emotional story with Fox 2's Andrea Isom, which you can find by clicking here.

    The city of Detroit says workers and retirees have approved pension cuts, a crucial step to emerging from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The city reported results Monday after two months of balloting ended July 11. A judge still must hold a trial to determine if Detroit's overall bankruptcy plan is fair and feasible, but support from retirees is vital.
