Attempted break-in at Arab newspaper in Dearborn prompts worries

  • Still from surveillance camera footage of attackers
Early this morning, two men attempted a break-in at the Arab American News in Dearborn. It was at about 2:33 a.m., and the newspaper itself reports that the majority of the staff was in the building at the time. The report also indicates that the would-be business-invaders knew the building was occupied. Unable to get into the building, the two fled in a Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

The fact that the two were trying to break in and knew the building was occupied has given rise to speculation that the duo intended a larger attack.
