"Peeper escapes during police chase
Police chased a window peeper through backyards early Monday after he watched a woman showering, but officers were unable to catch him, Ann Arbor Police reported.
A 21-year-old woman said she as showering at her home in the 800 block of East Ann Street at 7:30 a.m. Monday when she saw a man peering through her bathroom window, reports said. She said she screamed, then the man ran northbound in a long trench coat, reports said.
Officers spotted a man matching the description in a gated yard, but he was able to run off before they got close, reports said. A police tracking dog also was unable to find him.
Man reports abuse by homeless man
A 47-year-old homeless man was arrested Monday night on allegations that he physically and sexually assaulted a man who allowed him to stay at his residence in the last few weeks, Ann Arbor Police said.
The 29-year-old victim, who is mentally disabled, said he had been forced to perform sex acts and beg for money for the older man, reports said. He said he permitted the man to move in with him earlier this month and then became fearful of him, reports said.
The suspect is being held at the Washtenaw County Jail while prosecutors determine whether he will be charged with a crime. He also was wanted on misdemeanor warrants, police said. "
