Man charged with Macomb Township carjacking, suspected in other armed robbery
A 21-year-old man has been charged with carjacking two teens outside a pizza shop last week in Macomb Township and is suspected of being responsible for a separate armed robbery.
Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said the 19-year-old and 16-year-old victims were coming out of Little Cesars on 21 Mile Road Friday night when they were confronted by a gunman who was wearing a red bandana over his face. The gunman then took their money and fled in their 2001 Oldsmobile Alero.
The victims reported the carjacking and their car was spotted a short time later in Mount Clemens.
A deputy was able to pull it over and arrest the suspected carjacker. A handgun was recovered.
The suspect has been identified as Joseph Aaron Crossley of Macomb Township.
Wickersham said he's suspected of also being involved in a Feb. 4 armed robbery at a Domino's Pizza in Macomb Township.
