DEARBORN — A Dearborn man arrested for breaking into a vehicle was arraigned Aug. 25 in 19th District Court.
Ali Alsoweidi, 21, was charged with breaking and entering a building with intent, and breaking and entering a motor vehicle. Judge Mark Somers set Alsoweidi’s bond at $5,000 with a GPS tether if Alsoweidi is released on bond.
He waived his right to a preliminary exam and has been bound over to the Wayne County Circuit Court.
Alsoweidi will be back in court on Sept. 14 at 9 a.m. for his sentencing in front of Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Margie Braxton.
The incident occurred on July 27 when a woman parked her vehicle inside her detached garage in the 6400 block of Coleman.
She said she secured all her garage doors before entering her house. A few moments later, the woman’s dogs began barking and that is when she observed a bicycle leaning against her garage door and the pedestrian door open.
She went to investigate and observed a man, later identified Alsoweidi, inside her garage sitting inside the vehicle.
Alsoweidi fled on his bicycle as the woman called police. The woman provided a detailed description of Alsoweidi, who was apprehended by officers a short distance away.
“We are grateful that the victim took the initiative to contact the police immediately which allowed us to quickly respond and investigate the matter,” Police Chief Ronald Haddad said. “Due to the actions of the victim the Dearborn police were able to arrest the suspect quickly and remove a felon from the streets.”
