Man arrested for assault; victim’s eyes injured

A 37-year-old Northport man was arrested for domestic violence after an altercation this week in Leelanau Township.

Just after 5 p.m. Monday deputies made contact with a 30-year-old woman in Lake Leelanau who had fled her home after an incident with her boyfriend.

The victim indicated that she and the suspect had been arguing during which he allegedly came up behind her and poured cleaning liquid over the top of her head.

The liquid dripped down into the victim’s eyes causing injury. The woman fled the home with her 3 1/2-month-old daughter, according to a police report.

The victim was transported to Munson Medical Center for treatment.

Deputies later located and interviewed the suspect, who was then arrested for domestic assault.

He was lodged in the Leelanau County Jail.
