Livonia police are looking for two men who assaulted and threatened a grandmother last month inside a home while she was babysitting her child.

According to police, they believe this is not a random act because the men were let into a home by an acquaintance of the family. That woman who let them in has been arrested and charged for her involvement.

In the video, you can see one man grab the grandmother and then threaten her, telling her not to call the police.

"She told me there was nobody else here. Who are you?" the woman asked. 

"I'll make a phone call right now," she added before the man grabbed her. "You let go of me."

Investigators believe the suspects may be from the Detroit or Warren area. They also say the suspects took property from the house.

If you have any information of the suspects, shown clearly in the video above or below, please call Detective Salter at 734-466-2326 and reference case  #17-42274. You may remain anonymous.
