A 17-year-old Ypsilanti resident is in critical condition this afternoon after being hit on the on the head with a blunt object.

The Ypsilanti Police Department is searching for 20-year-old Dominic Deangelo Oyerinde, the victim's boyfriend, in relation to the felonious assault, which occurred at approximately 1:20 a.m. at the 1100 block of Congress St.

Officers arrived at Recreation Park, where witnesses say the couple walked to while arguing, to find the victim unconscious.

“She had a substantial wound to the head, what we later determined to be blunt force trauma caused by a crowbar, hammer or something with similar weight,” Police Chief Matthew Harshberger said.

Officers were able to track footprints in the snow back to a house on the same block of Congress, where the argument is said to have originated. The suspect is believed to have walked back and took the victim's mini-van, which is a 1997 Honda Odyssey with Michigan plate # BNA 1557.

Harshberger said Oyerinde is originally from Ann Arbor but is listed as "homeless" at the moment. Oyerinde has three active warrants, one of which is a domestic assault warrant filed about a month ago by the victim. The other warrants involve misdemeanor cases.

The van is silver or gray in color. Suspect's current whereabouts is unknown. Anyone that has information as to his whereabouts or that of the mini-van is asked to contact the Ypsilanti Police at 483-9510
