A 33-year-old woman was pistol-whipped and robbed early Monday inside her Southfield garage, according to police.

The woman is expected to recover from head injures after she was attacked around 2:40 a.m. on the 23000 block of Grayson, near Nine Mile and Greenfield, Lt. Ted Goff said.

"She was parking in her garage when she was approached by two subjects," Goff said. "They were wearing ski masks and they both had pistols."

Police had no further description of the suspects Monday morning.

During the robbery, the men ordered the woman to surrender her purse and other personal items.

"One of the suspects struck her several times in the head with the pistol he was holding," Goff said.

The suspects fled northbound on foot, leaving the woman injured but conscious when police arrived.

"She was alert and talking and she gave us what she could," said Goff, who added that the woman's injuries are not considered life-threatening.

The victim remained hospitalized Monday. Investigators plan to re-interview her after she recovers and also will continue speaking with witnesses to the attack.

"There were other people in the complex that heard the noise," Goff said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Southfield police at (248) 796-5500.
