YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, Mich. -

Allen Park police said a man is in custody after allegedly stabbing his ex-girlfriend early Thursday morning and then leading officers on a chase before crashing.

Police said the victim was walking to her car to go to work just before 3 a.m. when she was attacked and stabbed in the chest.

A neighbor heard the victim screaming and came out.

Police said the suspect then fled in a blue Chevy Cobalt.

An officer who had just finished his shift spotted the Cobalt and followed it until supporting officers tried to pull the suspect over at Allen and Southfield roads.

Police said the suspect didn’t stop, instead leading officers on a chase onto eastbound I-94. He crashed into the middle median at Huron Street and was taken into custody.

The condition of the victim wasn't immediately known.
