Taylor police arrest man in Detroit after chase

TAYLOR — Police arrested a man this morning in Detroit after he led officers on a chase that began in Taylor.

The 36-year-old Detroit man was wanted for a domestic assault that allegedly occurred earlier this morning in which he assaulted his victim with a box cutter, Police Chief Mary Sclabassi said.

A Taylor officer spotted the suspect about 8 a.m. in a Ford Edge in the area of Monroe and I-94. The man refused to stop for the officer and led him to the area of Central and MacKenzie streets in Detroit — near Livernois and Joy — where the suspect exited his vehicle and fled on foot, Sclabassi said.

With the assistance of Detroit police officers, the Taylor officer arrested the suspect a few blocks away. There were no injuries to police or the suspect, or damage to any vehicles, Sclabassi said.

A request for charges will be submitted to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, she said.
