68-Year-Old Man Charged With Driving Into Troy Protesters

  68-Year-Old Man Charged With Driving Into Troy Protesters Troy Police have arrested a 68-year-old man from Troy for felonious assault, for intentionally striking a protester with his car on northbound Coolidge at Big Beaver. The victim has no apparent injuries. Monday's protest was otherwise peaceful as hundreds of people marched through the city's streets against police brutality and racial injustice. Police blocked off traffic as the crowd walked in the middle of Big Beaver Road, alongside the Somerset Collection mall -- which had been closed temporarily as a precaution.Early reports indicated there could be looting, but that was not in evidence as people chanted for peace.

"They said, 'this is not right, something's wrong with this picture'," 84th Precinct Executive Officer Capt. Melody Robinson said.

Robinson says officers quickly tracked down the car and approached the driver and his passenger, who surrendered without incident.

But a search of the car left them stunned. A cache of weapons and tools to carry out an attack were found.

"Different types of knives and weapons," Robinson said. "Point-to-point radios, gas masks. All types of different things that you won't bring to a peaceful protest."

Investigators are trying to determine whether the two men took part in any of this week's demonstrations, or whether they played a role in orchestrating the violence that gripped this city for five straight nights.

Specifically, the attacks that have left dozens of New York City police officers injured.

Tonight, authorities are praising the demonstrators who came forward, in an act that is not unlike many we have seen in recent days. Protesters protecting lives, property and the cause, itself.

"I commend the peaceful protesters that actually saw something and they said something," Robinson said. "You know we need more of that in this city, so we can come together as one. They definitely saved lives."
