Sex Assault Suspect Found In Car Crash

By Patrick Sullivan | May 15, 2018

Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s deputies found a man seriously injured in a car crash just minutes after a woman reported him as a suspect in a sexual assault

The 26-year-old Traverse City man allegedly entered a Garfield Township home of a 22-year-old female acquaintance without permission, and she spotted him with his pants down rubbing against her at 1:15am Saturday, Lt. Chris Barsheff says. The man fled the house.

Barsheff says deputies were on the way to the woman’s home when they learned of a nearby crash at 1:28am.

As the investigation unfolded, deputies discovered that the sexual assault suspect was also the driver of the vehicle involved in the crash. He was seriously injured and admitted to Munson Medical Center’s intensive care unit. He is expected to face home invasion and criminal sexual conduct charges.
