Stabbing suspect arrested in Patterson Park

GROSSE POINTE CITY/PARK — A suspect wanted for felonious assault and attempted murder in Warren was arrested by Grosse Pointe Park Public Safety Department officers Saturday afternoon after he reportedly hopped a fence into Patterson Park.

According to a police report, the suspect — a 30-year-old Warren man — had been seen driving down Rivard Boulevard in Grosse Pointe City by City officers shortly before his arrest at 4:20 p.m. June 20. City and Park Public Safety Director Stephen Poloni said City officers noticed the vehicle he was in was missing its license plate, so they tried to pull him over, but he “took off at a high rate of speed.”

The suspect continued driving, making his way into the Park, where at some point he abandoned the vehicle and, according to a witness, began running through backyards and jumping over fences. Poloni said the vehicle was stolen and Park officers were able to locate it on a residential side street and recover it. Poloni said the suspect “had the key to the vehicle in his pocket” when he was arrested.

Officers “investigated and found the car had been stolen out of Warren the night before,” Poloni said.

The suspect is alleged to have stabbed his brother and stepfather in Warren earlier in the day June 20, the police report states. Poloni said no weapon was recovered on the suspect, but “he had blood on his hands and his shoes still” from the stabbing.

After his arrest, Poloni said, the suspect was turned over to the Warren Police Department. He’s not expected to face charges in the Park or City.

“We’re never surprised by the good work our officers do,” Poloni said. “They reacted quickly and apprehended a suspect who was dangerous and took him off the streets.”
