2 men arrested after fleeing police in Ypsilanti
Two men were arrested Monday morning after fleeing from police following a home invasion in Ypsilanti.
Officers responded to a call at 4:30 a.m. in the 200 block of Ferris Street for a home invasion that had just occurred, according to a press release.
The 18-year-old victim told police that two white men forced entry into his home and stole his Apple Macbook Pro laptop computer.
After gathering descriptions of the suspects from the victim, an Ypsilanti police officer located the suspect vehicle in the area of Michigan Avenue and Johnson Street.
A traffic stop was initiated and one of the vehicle's occupants fled on foot. The officer chased the suspect and was able to apprehend him. The suspect was in possession of the stolen laptop.
The driver and other occupants fled the scene in the vehicle, but were apprehended shortly after by another YPD officer. Both suspects, a 32-year-old man and a 25-year-old man from Belleville, were identified by the victim, according to the press release. The victim does not know the two suspects.
The two suspects and two women were transported to the county jail for lodging on home invasion and resisting and obstructing charges.
The 26-year-old female driver, a resident of Taylor, was released pending charges for fleeing and eluding. The other passenger, a 31-year-old woman from Taylor, was released without charges.
The two men will be arraigned on Tuesday, Sept. 10.
