Ypsilanti Township resident arrested for assault, kidnapping


Arraignment set later today for 67-year-old suspect

A 67-year-old Ypsilanti Township resident was arrested Sunday, after allegedly assaulting and attempting to kidnap a 35-year-old woman.

According to a release sent by the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office this morning, the victim received minor injuries after jumping from the suspect’s moving vehicle and being subsequently assaulted.

The release said the two had met earlier in the day. It said the two “spent most of the day together just driving around.”

When the victim asked to be dropped off later in the evening, police said the suspect refused to let her out of his van.

“The victim jumped out of the car while it was traveling down the road,” the report said.

After she leapt from the vehicle, police said the suspect then stopped his vehicle and assaulted her as he tried to pull her back into his van.

The report said the suspect fled the scene when a third party approached his vehicle.

After responding to the incident at 8 p.m., deputies located the suspect in his home, where he was arrested and transported to the Washtenaw County Jail.

Police said he will be arraigned later today.
