Multiple public safety officers responded at 5:44 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7, to a report of four young teenage males misbehaving at a fast-food restaurant in the 18800 block of Mack near Moross in Grosse Pointe Farms.

The incident spilled onto adjacent Kerby Field, where a knife was recovered, and a nearby residential neighborhood.

Officers arrested the quartet, all 14 years old from Detroit.

Three suspects are accused of resisting arrest and possessing stolen T-shirts. All four were charged with disorderly conduct.

Police didn’t say where the shirts were stolen.

The fourth suspect was charged with possession of a dangerous weapon, a knife.

“(He) dropped a handful of T-shirts and ran toward the Farms public works complex,” said an officer.

The Shores’ newest hire, Officer, Justin Reeves, sworn in last month, provided mutual aid.

“I assisted conducting yard-to-yard searches for the lone suspect still at large,” Reeves said.

“(The teen) was caught on Hillcrest,” said a Farms officer.

“He was apprehended in a rear yard,” Reeves said.

The youth admitted ditching a folding razor knife in the playfield.

“(He) admitted it was his and that he carries it for protection,” said an officer.

Two suspects were on bicycles. A mother of one suspect said her son doesn’t own a bike. She suspected the bikes were stolen.
