Crime Watch: Violent home invasion

Lakeside, Mich. Nearly two years after a violent home invasion, the victim still has surgeries to go through.

On July 13, 2012, 61-year-old Ann Dawson was home alone in Lakeside, Michigan when she was confronted by a suspect dressed entirely in black. He was armed with a gun, robbed, bound, and severely beat her.

Dawson suffered serious injuries that required surgery, including multiple broken bones in her wrist, arm and face.

The suspect is described as a white male in his twenties, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a thin build and large brown eyes.

A $10,000 reward has been raised by the family for information leading to an arrest. This reward will be paid in cash through Crime Stoppers, anonymously. You can call them with tips at (574) 288-STOP or 800-342-STOP.
