While stopped at the light, the suspect approached from the passenger side of the vehicle and attempted to gain entry by lifting up the front passenger side door handle several times.

Officers placed the vehicle in park at which time the suspect walked over to another vehicle adjacent to the officers, stopped at the same traffic signal. This vehicle was occupied by an unknown white female, driving a black newer model Lincoln sedan.

The suspect opened the door of the female victim’s vehicle. The officers feared that the suspect was attempting to carjack the female.

Upon further investigation, the officers found that the suspect was on parole. The suspect’s parole agent was contacted and a detainer was placed in lieu of the pending violations. The suspect was arrested and processed at the Detroit Detention Center.
