Ann Arbor man faces charge of assault with intent to murder after domestic dispute
A 33-year-old Ann Arbor man is facing numerous charges, including assault with intent to murder, after a physical altercation with his girlfriend, Ann Arbor police said.
On Saturday, Deandre Chaneyfield was arraigned on that charge as well as assault with intent to do bodily harm less than murder, domestic violence, second offense, and assaulting, resisting or obstructing a police officer.
Chaneyfield’s 33-year-old girlfriend, also of Ann Arbor, suffered a broken arm and leg, as well as multiple injuries to the head, said Lt. Renee Bush of the Ann Arbor Police Department.
“She fought back. She was very scared,” Bush said.
At 8:20 p.m. April 26, Police were dispatched to the 2700 block of Hikone Drive, where the couple had been “arguing all day,” Bush said.
The situation soon became physical. The woman told police she was thrown against a wall. She also said Chaneyfield punched her in the face and that she momentarily blacked out.
“When she couldn’t fight back anymore, she became very scared,” Bush said.
Both Chaneyfield and the woman were taken to the University of Michigan Hospital after the altercation.
Chaneyfield is being held at the Washtenaw County jail on a $100,000 bond. His preliminary examination is set for May 10.
