Jonathan Bernard Rucker, a 26-year-old Ypsilanti Township resident, was arraigned Monday in connection to an incident Saturday evening on the 8800 block of MacArthur Boulevard in Superior Township, where a suspect assaulted a victim and attempted to set the residence on fire.

According to reports from the Washtenaw County Sheriff Office, Rucker entered the residence, highly intoxicated, Saturday night, looking for someone who was not there. The suspect then poured bleach throughout the residence, assaulting one victim when she tried to stop him.

Though the WCSO said he fled before deputies arrived on the scene, they were able to arrest Rucker after he entered St. Joseph Hospital in Ypsilanti with other injuries, not sustained at the crime scene. The WCSO said he also assaulted medical personnel at the hospital while receiving treatment.

Rucker was arraigned on charges of obstructing and resisting police, malicious destruction of property, arson under $200 and aggravated assault. He has been lodged in the Washtenaw County Jail with a $25,000 bond, awaiting a pre-trial scheduled for May 11.

Deputies make five warrant arrests in the area
From Monday evening until early this morning, WCSO deputies arrested five different individuals in Ypsilanti and Superior Townships with outstanding warrants ranging from driving without a license to retail fraud.

A 51-year-old man was arrested at 9 p.m. Monday after deputies were dispatched to check out a suspicious incident on the 1000 block of Lori Street in Ypsilanti Township. He had outstanding warrants for failing to appear on charges of retail fraud and driving while his license was suspended. He was arrested and lodged in Washtenaw County Jail.

A 23-year-old woman was arrested at 10:40 p.m. Monday during a traffic stop in the 2200 block of Bryn Mawr Lane in Ypsilanti Township. Her warrants were for retail fraud in Ann Arbor and failing to appear on charges of operating a vehicle as a minor with blood alcohol content. She was arrested and lodged in Washtenaw County Jail.

A 22-year-old woman was arrested at 11:20 p.m. Monday on the 9200 block of MacArthur Boulevard in Superior Township. Deputies meant to arrest someone else on a warrant, but that person was not there at the time. It was determined the woman had outstanding warrants for retail fraud, defective equipment and driving while licenses suspended. She was arrested and lodged in Washtenaw County Jail.

A 25-year-old man was arrested at 12:45 a.m. today after deputies stopped a suspicious vehicle on the 8800 block of Macarthur Boulevard in Superior Township. The driver had outstanding warrants for failing to appear on charges of domestic violence and driving while license suspended, and warrants for driving while licenses suspended again and failure to display valid driver's license. Since the domestic violence charge was in Farmington Hills, he was arrested and transported to the Farmington Hills Police Department.

A 40-year-old man was arrested at 2:55 a.m. today during a traffic stop on Wendell Avenue near Holmes Road in Ypsilanti Township. The driver had two outstanding warrants, one for failing to appear on unknown charges and one for having no driver's license. He was arrested and transported to the Washtenaw County Jail.

Burglary
Residents of a home on the 1400 block of Desoto Avenue in Ypsilanti Township told the WCSO at 7:20 a.m. Monday that their home had been broken into.

Entry was gained through a back door during Sunday evening, deputies reported. The home was ransacked, and residents were not sure what had been taken.

No suspects have yet been identified.

Public disturbance
Ypsilanti Police reported to a report of a group of 10 teenagers fighting in a parking lot at 10:49 p.m. Monday on the 100 block of South Hamilton Road in Ypsilanti.

When officers arrived at the lot, the group had dispersed. No victims or suspects could be located.
