Observer  Westland Police credited tips from the public for identifying the suspects wanted in the April 3 assault of Livonia resident Adam Wagner, 25, in the parking lot of 7-Eleven, 160 S. Venoy.

Once the story and store surveillance photos of the suspects were released to the media, police received tips identifying the men by name, said Westland Police Lt. Todd Adams.

The Westland men were identified as a 37-year old man and his nephew, 20. The Wayne man was also identified as 20 years old and a friend of the other men.

A warrant request has been submitted to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.“We’re waiting to hear from the prosecutor,” said Adams. “Two of the men turned themselves in. We had to go get the other man.”

Wagner told police that he was in the convenience store just before 2 a.m. when three men were giving the female clerk a hard time. After telling the men to leave the clerk alone, Wagner told police the men began harassing him inside the store.

Once outside in the parking lot, Wagner told police the men noticed military insignias on his vehicle and began making insulting remarks about him, as well as the military. The trio then attacked the man, punching and kicking him before leaving on foot, police said.

But when the victim followed them while trying to call 911, police said, the three “turned and attacked him again, knocking him to the ground while punching and kicking him.”

The victim sought help from a resident in a nearby neighborhood, who called police. He was taken to a local hospital and treated for a broken nose, head injuries and facial lacerations, police said.

Wagner went to a nearby home where he received assistance until police and paramedics arrived. Police said he had received lacerations to his face and mouth, head injuries and a broken nose.
