Four people have been arrested for allegedly starting a fight over a stolen sweatshirt and beating a 24-year-old man.

The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office said the incident happened Wednesday on Brookhurst Drive in Macomb Township.

Four suspects began pounding on the door of a home demanding to talk to a 24-year-old resident about the sweatshirt. When she refused to open the door, the suspects threw a brick through a window, hitting the 51-year-old homeowner in the leg.

The 24-year-old and her also 24-year-old boyfriend eventually went outside and were confronted by the suspects.

The boyfriend was kicked to the ground and beaten in the head until the 51-year-old homeowner was able to intervene.

The suspects were tracked down and arrested.

The victim was taken to Henry Ford Macomb Hospital.

His condition was not immediately released.
