      Armed suspect sought in trailer park robbery

      Monroe County authorities are seeking a man who robbed a woman armed with a knife late Monday at Newport Farms mobile home community.

      Just after 11 p.m., sheriff's deputies responded to 9000 Timberview Drive on a report of an armed robbery. The victim, a woman in her early 30s, told police she had just returned home and was exiting her vehicle when the suspect approached her. The man reportedly grabbed her green purse and demanded she let go, saying he had a knife.

      The suspect, described by authorities as a white male in his 20s with a blonde buzz haircut, then fled the scene on foot. At the time of the crime, the suspect was wearing dark clothing and wire frame glasses.

      The incident is under investigation by Deputies Moody and Hooper of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. Anyone with information relating to this incident is asked to call the Monroe County Sheriff's Detective Bureau at 734-240-7530
