A 47-year-old Clinton Township man was arrested after Royal Oak Police responded to a suspected window peeper Wednesday morning.
A woman living in the 2100 block of Dallas called to report a man knocking on her bedroom windows from the outside at 4:50 a.m. As officers arrived, they saw a man disappear into the backyard of the residence. Shortly after, officers saw a man get into a vehicle down the block.
Police say as officers converged on the vehicle, it sped out of the neighborhood at a high rate of speed onto I-696. The driver temporarily eluded officers when he got on the freeway but an alert Ferndale officer saw the vehicle as it pulled into a convenience store in the area of 9 Mile and Pinehurst.
The suspect was taken into custody and turned over to Royal Oak officers.
