Rochester & Rochester Hills Gazette

FELON FLEES ARREST WARRANT – Deputies attempted to execute an arrest warrant in the 1700 block of Bedford Square in Rochester Hills for a wanted felon living at the residence. When Deputies approached the residence, the subject ran out the back door wall and fled west through the adjacent apartment complex and into a deeply wooded area. Deputies pursued the subject but lost sight on him in the woods. A K-9 Unit from the City of Rochester PD and an OCSO K-9 Unit provided assistance. A perimeter was set up and the two K-9’s tracked the subject to the wooded area where they lost the scent. Deputies made contact with the suspect’s family and advised them to contact Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office if the suspect returns home. The suspect remains at large. The subject is wanted for Resisting and Obstructing a Police Officer and Court ordered Zero Tolerance Program Violations.

DID THEY ORDER THE PREMIUM CHANNELS? On August 22, a Rochester resident came to the Rochester Police Department to file a fraud report. The complainant stated an unknown person opened a Comcast account in his name. The incident is under investigation.

TRESPASSING WITH A WARRANT – On August 20, Rochester police officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Walnut for a trespassing complaint. It was determined that the unwanted person, a 69 year old Pontiac resident, had a parole absconder warrant from the Michigan Department of Corrections. The subject was placed under arrest and held until the Michigan Department of Corrections could pick him up.

INDECENT EXPOSURE AT TARGET PARKING LOT – Deputies responded to the parking lot of the Target store located in the 2800 block of S. Rochester Rd on the report of a male subject who was seen to be masturbating inside a green Chevrolet Trailblazer. The incident was witnessed by three young girls who notified their parents of the incident. The girl’s parents called 9-1-1 to report the incident. Upon their arrival, Deputies located the subject seated inside of the Trailblazer. The subject had his pants undone and his genitalia exposed. The driver was taken into custody without incident. An Evidence Technician processed the vehicle and collected evidence found inside. The vehicle was subsequently impounded. The suspect made admissions to Detectives regarding the incident during his interview. Due to the suspect’s severe medical ailments and condition, the suspect was released pending the issuance of criminal charges. The incident will be presented to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office.

COMBATIVE SUBJECT AT COMMON GROUND – Deputies responded to the Common Ground Crisis Facility for a subject that had become combative towards Common Ground staff and Star Paramedics. The subject had been transferred by Paramedics from Star EMS to the Common Ground Crisis Facility from St. Joseph’s Mercy Hospital. During the intake process, the subject suddenly became uncooperative and aggressive. The subject began to struggle with staff and spit at several care providers. Upon their arrival, Deputies restrained the subject while Paramedics placed him in soft restraints. Common Ground refused to accept the subject. He was then transported back to St. Joseph’s Mercy Hospital where he again began to physically fight with hospital personnel and again spat at Paramedics and hospital staff. The subject was then medically cleared for incarceration by hospital staff, and was subsequently arrested and transported to the Oakland County Jail where he was lodged for assault and battery.
