Police chase ends in arrest
A 45-year-old Van Buren Township resident will be arraigned today after his arrest Thursday following a police chase through Ypsilanti city and township.

Ypsilanti Police began following a vehicle that was wanted in connection with an Ann Arbor bank robbery at 7:30 a.m. Four area police agencies eventually became involved in the pursuit.

Ypsilanti, Michigan State and Eastern Michigan University police were involved in the case, as well as Washtenaw County Sheriff’s deputies.

A report issued by police today said the suspect was traveling east on Michigan Avenue when he struck a Michigan State Police vehicle and a deputy was able to position his vehicle behind the suspect.

The chase ended when the suspect’s vehicle hit a concrete post at Holmes Road, near Ford Boulevard.

Police said the suspect fled on foot, but was arrested shortly after being tasered. He was arrested and brought to the Washtenaw County Jail.

Attempted murder
A 42-year-old Ypsilanti Township resident will be arraigned today after police arrested her Thursday, suspecting she stabbed her husband in the chest.

Deputies responded to the 200 block of Hewitt Road at 12:30 a.m., where they discovered a husband and wife had been involved in a verbal argument.

“During the argument the suspect had stabbed her husband in the chest,” a report issued by police today said.

Police said the victim was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital with serious, non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect was arrested and transported to the Washtenaw County Jail.

Home Invasion
A 53-year-old Superior Township resident was arrested Thursday after police responded to a home invasion in Ypsilanti Township.

Deputies were called to the 1300 block of Russell Street at 9:30 p.m., where it was reported that someone had attempted to gain entry into the residence.

“The homeowners observed the suspect attempting to gain entry into their daughter’s bedroom,” a report issued by police today said.

Though the suspect fled the scene, he was located on foot in the area a short time later. He was arrested and transported to the Washtenaw County Jail. Police said he will be arraigned later today.
