GENEVA TOWNSHIP, Mich.- A K-9 unit responded to a domestic violence call Sunday on the 68000 block of county road 388 in Van Buren County.

Officials say that while an officer was speaking with the victim and witness, the suspect was seen walking around the corner of an outbuilding near the scene.

After speaking with the victim and witness, police attempted to locate the suspect in the outbuilding. It was assumed the suspect fled on foot, after not finding the suspect in the outbuilding.

The deputy was able to locate the suspect 1/4 mile from the residence in a thick, swampy area, after performing a K-9 track. The suspect was then taken into custody for domestic assault, and has been transported to the Van Buren County Jail.
