Three men have been arrested for beating a Mackinac Island man with a baseball bat.

While on foot patrol early Tuesday morning, a State Police Trooper from St. Ignace heard screams coming from a nearby apartment and saw 3 black males running with a baseball bat.  The trooper was able to stop two of the men but the third, carrying the bat, got away.   

The two suspects, from the Detroit metro area, told police they entered the apartment to get money owed to them.  They admitted to beating the victim with a baseball bat and taking close to $300 from him and his girlfriend.  They also identified the third suspect who is from Illinois.

The third suspect was located and taken into custody about 5 hours later.

All three men are facing charges of armed robbery and home invasion first degree.

It takes a pretty tough cop to chase after 3 three men armed with a weapon. It takes an even tougher cop to catch two of them. Good work MSP trooper.
