NORTHVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. - A 31-year-old Detroit man was arrested Monday in connection with an assault and home invasion from earlier this year in Northville Township.

Deamo Lavaughn Lately is accused of assaulting a resident April 30 during a home invasion near Five Mile and Bradner roads.

Northville Township police said May 1 that two men forced their way into the home in the 42000 block of 5 Mile Road and confronted the residents with guns.

One of the residents was physically assaulted, and shots were fired by the men, police said.

Jewelry and a handgun were stolen from the home, and the men fled in the resident's 2015 Chevrolet Corvette and 2016 Lexus RX350 SUV. The Corvette was seen on eastbound I-96, but police lost sight of the car after a chase. The Corvette was later recovered in Detroit.

Police said the home was likely singled out because no other break-ins were reported in Northville Township.

Lately was arraigned on charges of armed robbery, carjacking, home invasion, unlawful imprisonment and firearms violations.

He is being held at the Wayne County Jail on $1 million bail.

Lately is scheduled to return to court Oct. 20.
