On 11/16/18, around 3:20pm, a citizen driving in the area of Emerald Drive and Miller Road observed a male physically assaulting a female. The citizen stopped and exited their vehicle with the intent of intervening on the assault. The suspect quickly turned his aggression toward the citizen while pulling out a knife and striking the citizen in the face with his fist. The male suspect then entered the citizens’ vehicle and attempted to drive away, however, the citizen was able to regain control of the vehicle. The citizen only suffered minor injuries from this incident.
The male suspect fled the scene on foot to the north and many Kalamazoo Public Safely Officers quickly responded to the area. A police K9 conducted a track for the suspect; however, at the time of this report he could not be located.
The male suspect is described as a white male, approximately 35-45 years old, about 5’10”, bald head with an unshaven face wearing a camouflage colored jacket, blue jeans and black boots. The female he was reportedly assaulting was a white female wearing all blue and carrying a black backpack.
Anyone having information regarding this incident, or any other crimes in Kalamazoo, is encouraged to contact the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety at 337-8120 or Silent Observer at 343-2100
