According to a statement released Wednesday morning, deputies believe Glenn assaulted a woman in the 2300 block of McKinley Road. Glenn and the woman knew each other.

The woman was severely injured and deputies said she was “brutally assaulted.” She was taken to the hospital, where she is in serious but stable condition.

The nature of the assault is unknown at this point. Deputies would only say the woman suffered multiple injuries.

Deputies said they’re treating the incident as an attempted murder. No further information on the incident was available Wednesday morning.

Glenn is a 21-year-old Ypsilanti Township resident. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to call the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line at 734-973-7711 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587).

Damn, bad enough you get beat up by somebody you don't know, but by somebody you do know???? I hope the woman recovers fully, and the suspect is caught soon. (real soon)

He should go in a "Special Cell" once he's caught.

If he isn't put away for good, he will most likely finish the job. That poor woman.

Another example of our failed criminal justice system, how convenient that the Sherriff's Dept has a "mugshot" of this person, obviously he has been in custody previously for some reason. We need to find a way to incarcerate or rehabilitate those who offend once before releasing them for them to commit more crimes. I wonder what % of crimes are committed by people who have been previously in trouble, my bet it is VERY high. We keep spending $$$ on re arresting people and putting them through the "system" numerous times.
