Detroit Man Arrested for near Murder of Dearborn Psychiatrist

DEARBORN, MI – A Detroit man was arrested and arraigned on charges in the brutal assault and near murder of a Dearborn psychiatrist.

In the evening of Wednesday October 10th, 2018 a concerned family member contacted the Dearborn Police Department and asked them to check on her husband who had not come home from work. Dearborn officers then responded to the area of Grindley Park and Outer Dr where they made a forced entry into the husband’s place of business.Emanuel Vaughn

Once inside, they found the victim, a 75 year old psychiatrist going in and out of consciousness with evidence of a severe beating and stab wounds to both legs. He was immediately transported to a medical facility by Dearborn Fire Rescue.

Detectives responded and began an intensive investigation. After several days of searching for evidence, detectives identified a person of interest. The continuing investigation led to the arrest of Emanuel Vaughn, a 33 year old Detroit resident.

The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office charged Emanuel Vaughn with Assault with Intent to Murder, Armed Robbery Causing Serious Injury, Assault with Intent to do Great Bodily Harm Less Than Murder or by Strangulation and Assault with a Dangerous Weapon.

Vaughn was arraigned October 18th in front of the Honorable Judge Mark Somers of the 19th District Court and bond was set at $1,000,000 cash. A probable cause conference is set for October 26, 2018 at 9:00am.

Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad added, “While this was not a random act of violence, crimes of this nature destroy people’s sense of safety and security and will not be tolerated in Dearborn. I commend the citizens and investigators for a job well done.”
