Fraud from a stolen vehicle
After purchasing a car, an Ypsilanti Township resident got a surprise when she bought it to the Secretary of State’s Office Monday.

Deputies reported to the 2100 block of Lakeview Drive in Ypsilanti Township to get the victim’s report. Police said she was informed by office staff there was already a title in the system for the vehicle she had purchased.

Police discovered it had been reported stolen out of Detroit last week and was returned to the owners.

The victim had found the car on Craigslist.com, and paid $2,000 cash for purchase.

Domestic assault
Deputies were dispatched by 911 to the 100 block of Pasadena Street in Ypsilanti Township for a domestic assault in progress at 9 p.m. Monday.

Police said the suspect had fled prior to their arrival on the scene. Once there, they found a 22-year-old Ypsilanti Township woman was assaulted by her 21-year-old boyfriend of 4 years.

The suspect later returned and tried to kick in the front door to gain entry into the residence. Deputies again responded and located the suspect in the back yard.

While attempting to place the suspect under arrest, police say he assaulted the three deputies. After he was subdued, police placed under arrest and transported to the Washtenaw County Jail.

At 2 p.m. Monday, Washtenaw County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 8900 block of Nottingham in Superior Township for a burglary.

Police said the side garage door was kicked in during the preceding hour. One Playstation 3 and a 37 inch Toshiba Television was taken. Police said the case is under investigation and there are no suspects at this time.
