Man Barricades Self, Victim Then Flees Police in Tuscola County

A 19-year-old is in custody in Tuscola County Jail after he was arrested on charges related to an assault on Saturday.

Caro Police were called to an incident in the area of Congress Street south of State Street at around 3:30 p.m. for a feloneous assault and possible barricaded suspect. They arrived to find that the suspect had fled with another relative.

At about 7:50 an off duty State Trooper who had assisted earlier in the day located a vehicle related to the incident in the parking lot of Club 24, a restaurant near M-24 and Riley Road. The suspect was found hiding under blankets in the back of the vehicle and arrested. A 65-year-old woman was also arrested inside the restaurant.

Both are lodged in Tuscola County Jail. The victim was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
