Dearborn Police have arrested a Detroit man accused of severely beating a psychiatrist at an office earlier this month.

On Oct. 10, police responded to a call from a concerned wife who asked officers to check on her husband when he did come home from work.

Police were dispatched to the husband's place of business in the area of Grindley Park and Outer Drive. When they entered the office, the 75-year-old victim was discovered "going in and out of consciousness with evidence of a severe beating and stab wounds to both legs."

The 75-year-old psychiatrist was immediately taken to a local hospital.

An investigation by Dearborn police led to the arrest of Detroit resident 33-year-old Emanuel Vaughn. 

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office charged Vaughn with several counts including: assault with intent to murder and armed robbery causing serious injury. He was arraigned on Oct. 18 and bond was set at $1,000,000.

“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," said Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad.

Vaughn is due back in court on Oct. 26.
