CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) - An elementary school in Clinton Township was locked down briefly Monday morning after a nearby home invasion.
The lockdown was lifted at Tenniswood Elementary School just before 10 a.m.
Just a couple hours earlier, a woman came home to her house on Grandy Street and says she saw a man leaving her house.
According to police, the suspect hit the woman in her head and put a knife to her throat before leaving the house with money, a phone and two handguns.
Fox 2 tried to speak to the victim but someone on her behalf said she would not make any statements.
Police say a sheriff's dog was sent to find the suspect, but a short time later the dog lost the suspect's scent.
Three L'Anse Creuse public schools were put on lockdown for about one hour during the search.
As the investigation continues, police tell Fox 2, some of the items were recovered in the area, but not the handguns
