DEARBORN, Mich. – A second man has been charged in connection with an attempted break-in this month at the Detroit-area offices of The Arab American News.
Dearborn police say 22-year-old Kawayne Powell of Taylor turned himself in Monday and was arraigned on charges that included attempted breaking and entering and possession of burglary tools. The court says he'll get a court-appointed attorney.
Police Chief Ronald Haddad tells The Associated Press that theft appeared to be the motive.
Surveillance video showed two men apparently using a hammer to try to smash a rear glass door around 2:30 a.m. March 11 at the office in Dearborn, a city with large Arab and Muslim populations. Employees were working inside.
Twenty-year-old Deandre Bey of Detroit also was charged. The AP left a message Wednesday for his lawyer.
