Police say three teens hired a prostitute in Hamtramck and after being sexually pleasured, they allegedly pulled out a gun and robbed her.
Detective Michael Szymanski said the incident took place at around 2:30 a.m. on July 15 in the Carpenter-Conant area.
Ibrahim Zabed, 18, of Hamtramck, Abdul Samad, 17, of Detroit and Habibur Miah, also 17 of Detroit are being charged with armed robbery and using a firearm in the commission of a felony.
Szymanski said the teens drove around while be serviced and when they were done, they dragged the prostitute, a 31-year-old Detroit woman, out of their car. Police declined to identify the woman.
The woman noticed that the car’s license plate was dangling and tore it off before the teens drove away. The woman approached police officers who were nearby responding to an unrelated incident.
Police were able to track down the address of the car’s owner, which was Zabed. But before police approached the house later in the day, Zabed turned himself in when he realized his license plate was missing.
The other two suspects were later arrested after detectives interviewed Zabed.
Zabed is free on bond. Samad and Miah are being held in jail until they can post 10 percent of their $100,000 bond.
The three suspects have a preliminary examination on July 22 in Hamtramck 31st District Court.

LOL! WOW!!! Not surprised though. I hope they get punished for what they’ve done. Robbing a prostitute how stupid is that? Really if you guys needed the money then why not work for it? If the prostitute can work on the streets then you can too. You don’t have to rob in order to survive. lol This is really so sad. I feel ashamed to even say that their bengali. Your mothers and fathers raised you better then that.

@ babegurl: the best evidence they will have against these three little piggies is their own confessions. you should never, ever talk to the police. the reason why one would want to “remain silent” is because anything can can be used against the him. imagine if after the cops knocked on zabed’s door, he didn’t open it. he doesn’t have to open it. even with an arrest warrant, they can’t enter. they would need a search warrant. and let’s say if the police actually decided to go through all this trouble for a street hooker, if zabed had been arrest, stayed silent, then they would have no evidence against him aside from what the prostitute provided. and she would easily be impeached as a witness because she’s a prostitute! additionally, she is unlikely to testify in court. let’s be real, the chances of a hooker going to court are not great. so if this ass clown had kept his mouth shut, he would’ve been okay. but now, he has given them all they need: his own admission. seriously, what better is there?
@ detective szymanski: yeah, the press never prints anything if it has an iota of falsehood or mistruths. that’s like saying cops don’t eat donuts. newspapers are riddled with misinformation and inaccuracies. that’s just the nature of the business. it’s not necessarily anything intentional or personal, it’s human error and laziness.
@ rest of you curious cats: if you want to know what really happened and the what the police report says and what zabed and the other two’s arrest reports say, request the info under FOIA. if you dont’ know what iFOIA is, google it and download a sample template which will have the letter written for you. by law, the city has to provide the information to you or provide a compelling reason why the information is protected or not discoverable.
and finally, i feel sorry for all you losers here. what is up with this hamtragic mentality? it’s a good thing i left that dump and that environment of “thug life is cool” when i left to get my undergrad degree. did you guys see these gundas’ facebook pics? it’s like they romanticize looking like miscreants and wanna-be thugs. while they’re parents are out working hard at the factories, restaurants, or driving a cab, they are out doing shondami and gundami.
please, guys: be like me — go to school, do well, get a decent job, move yourselves out of the lower class and into the upper middle class. and if you don’t want to do that, at worse, just stay home, play video games, and rent movies. at least that way you will stay out of trouble and save your parents heartache. can you imagine what these gundas’ parents (especially their moms) are going through?
by the way, ladies, i’m on the market to get married. please forward your biodata to email@example.com.

i am smarter than the imposters out there. that being said, this is the last comment i’m posting. if anyone else posts anything with my name, it’s not authentic. but if you ladies would like to get in touch with me, please do send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

micheal szymanski said “False representation of yourself on the internet is illegal everyone 🙂 ”
that is not true. and if it is, i challenge you to show us your authority. please pull the michigan statutory authority or case law citing to the same.
however, you do have to be careful in posing or posting about others. for instance, if someone posed as me or talked about me in a negative light, i would file a john doe complaint and subpoena the IP address of the poster. once i’m armed with that information, i would then be able to subpoena the ISP to provide me with the subscribers name and address. i can then substitute john doe as a defendant with the posters name! but all this would cost a significant amount of time, labor, and court fees, so i would just not bother. plus, i would have to show the court that i’m able to establish a prima facie case of defamation.
amar goo khow!

As soon as I read this article, I was deeply disturbed. Seeing that it was posted by a newspaper, I believed everything that was said on this article. Now, after close friends of the young men get rattled up, I do not know what to believe. This does not hide the fact that there must be some truth behind what is said in this article and why these boys were given this much publicity. The details of this particular article may not be true but it’s hard to believe that Charles Sercombe of the Hamtramck Review would sit in his office concocting a story of how three young men robbed a prostitute.
July 24, 2010 at 11:08 pm
Wow most of you are really ignorant. You have nothing to add to this but make random comments. Read what your writing before you post. Hood rats like you make our Bengali community look bad. Are there not any more intelligent people in Hamtramck. Btw all of you putting your name as Micheal Szymanski, it’s illegal to impersonate someone especially a police officer.
July 25, 2010 at 3:35 pm
Thank goodness gracious! Lord have mercy! ^^

like the late Craig Ferguson has memorably noted, “our justice system is heavily based on fishing; Catch and Release”

August 7, 2010 at 7:53 pm

Get a fucking life u worthless piece if life! feel sry for all ur parents raising u guys all these years to see their hard work go to waste. Do them a favor!
August 16, 2010 at 11:29 pm
They aint even do this. why is our justice system always gettin the innocnt ones
August 25, 2010 at 3:23 pm
Man none of y’all have correct grammar even the ones that try to correct others also have horrible grammar damn are we bangalis that stupid now a days and everyone saying they innocent think about it this way if ur in a car and your boy has weed and y’all get stopped everyone in the car is guilty cuz u were there so according to the law they’re guilty but maybe in ethical sense they’re innocent but in every lie there’s a bit of truth
But damn most of u that commented need to worry about going to English class rather than wasting ur time worried about stupid people like this
we bangalis man we have to take care of our parents when they old so if u can’t take care of yourself now u going to take care of them. So get educated and become successful and we’re supposed to be the first generation of educated bangalis so much for educated
August 26, 2010 at 10:30 pm
@123. You are talking bout grammer but your self got run on sentences. Lol
August 26, 2010 at 10:33 pm
Sorry my comment was for “old friend” “not 123”
August 30, 2010 at 3:46 pm
You’re talking about grammar yet you lack proper punctuation in your sentences. I know these boys well enough to know they would never do something like this. Worry about yourself, not on how the others commented this. This is the internet not everyone chooses to spell things thoroughly. Abbreviating things doesn’t mean they need to go through an English class. By the way, “Ya’ll” isn’t a word. Maybe you should go take an Ebonics/English class.
One more thing, you lack punctuation in your whole comment. You have no commas, no periods, and a variety of run on sentences. I agree with Tito’s comment.
May Allah be with these young boys.
September 2, 2010 at 11:42 pm
^ Well said, lol
November 19, 2010 at 4:42 pm

November 28, 2010 at 11:42 pm
Get your facts straight before saying anything. No they did not. May Allah forgive you for wishing harm on others.

blah, nothing on your blog is loading fast for me. I click something and it just sits for around 30 secs, then my anti virus thing pops up and says there’s a threat and asks if I want to continue. Anyone else getting this or do I just have a ghetto antivirus?
