In the final day of Detroit’s Most Wanted 7 on 7, we dug deeper into the new US Marshals task force launching in Washtenaw County and help capture our fourth fugitive of the week.

The target was Demond Harris.

“He likes to beat women, he’s a coward and we got a place for him,” Deputy US Marshal Robert Watson said.  He’s in charge of this new fugitive team.

Its guys like Harris the Marshals are always ready for, training their new fugitive team comprised of members from all local Washtenaw County agencies to be ready to face the worst.

Harris was wanted in Ann Arbor for strangulation, domestic violence, and malicious destruction of property in addition to probation violations.

He is now being taken in for processing.

Demond Harris is 6’2” 235 pounds and was considered armed and dangerous.
