ALLEN PARK —The steering wheel was stolen from a rental car about 4 a.m. June 28 while the victim was staying at TownePlace Suites, 16850 Southfield Road.
A window was broken on the car, a silver 2022 Chevy Malibu LT, to gain access to the interior. Security personnel said the thief escaped as a passenger in a red Dodge Challenger. The thief was described as a black male, approximately 6 feet tall, wearing a blue sweatshirt and blue jeans.
The getaway vehicle had tinted windows, so the driver could not be seen. The vehicle was driven north on the Southfield Freeway.

Hotel personnel promised to retrieve and send the surveillance footage of the incident to police officers.
