OCSO cruiserFERRY TWP. — A 37-year-old Pentwater man is lodged in the Oceana County Jail on outstanding warrants following a two-county, 30-mile police chase from Shelby to Holton Saturday afternoon, April 18.

Police were dispatched to a felonious assault investigation in which the suspect allegedly threatened to cut the victim’s throat with a knife at residence in the 4500 block of S. 144th Avenue at 1:30 p.m., stated Lt. Craig Mast of the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office. The suspect had fled the residence, and police were notified that the suspect was going to attempt to further assault the victim at Mercy Health Lakeshore Campus in Shelby, where she was receiving treatment. Officers from the Shelby Police Department located the suspect at the hospital, where a lengthy chase ensued involving OCSO, the Hart post of the Michigan State Police, the Department of Natural Resources and the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office, Mast said. The suspect was eventually apprehended in Holton where he was arrested on outstanding warrants, including failure to pay child support. He will face additional charges stemming from the assault and police chase.

Oceana County law enforcement handled two separate police chases over the weekend, including one Sunday afternoon in which a Montague man allegedly stole a truck; hit a police car; and rolled the truck over.
