Detroit Man Arrested in Alleged Brutal Beating of Girlfriend

Recently, Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office detectives apprehended Michael Glenn of Ypsilanti Township, who had been wanted since November when it was believed he attempted to murder his girlfriend after she decided to break off the couple’s relationship.

News sources state that detectives had been in pursuit of Glenn since November 27, after he was accused of stabbing and hitting his girlfriend, then running her over with her own vehicle. Derrick Jackson, spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said that Glenn’s girlfriend went to his home in the 2300 block of McKinley Road, intending to end the relationship and pick up some of her possessions which were at Glenn’s home. Glenn allegedly got inside the vehicle and an argument ensued.

The Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office approved a warrant for Glenn’s arrest the following day, stating that if apprehended he would be charged with seven counts including unlawful imprisonment and domestic violence, two counts of assault with intent to murder, and two counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm.

While the two were arguing in the vehicle, Glenn allegedly stabbed his girlfriend in the face numerous times with an unknown object, and began strangling her to the point that she blacked out. Glenn then reportedly dragged her out of the vehicle and ran over her several times. At that point, he tried to place her in the trunk, but she came to and fought back, eventually convincing Glenn that she would stay with him. The woman ran to a neighbor’s home after Glenn went inside the house to get something, and deputies were called. Before they could arrive at the scene, Glenn fled the area in the victim’s vehicle.

The woman was in serious but stable condition following the altercation, and was treated at a local hospital. Glenn was eventually apprehended after being on the lam for weeks. After receiving a tip about Glenn’s location just days ago, he is incarcerated at the Washtenaw County Jail where he remains on a $250,000 bond. A preliminary exam is scheduled for January 22 at 8:30 a.m.

Glenn will undoubtedly face serious criminal penalties if convicted of the charges against him; Michigan criminal defense attorneys know that individuals charged with serious or violent crimes must have a skilled lawyer who will work vigorously to protect their legal rights and freedom.
