(Royal Oak Police Report, March 24, 2014)

On Saturday, March 22, 2014, at approximately 03:00 a.m., a female resident was attacked while walking up to her home on the 3200 block of N. Blair.  The woman had just parking her car in the street and was walking up to her front porch when she was suddenly grabbed from behind by an unknown man. The suspect pinned her arms down and forced her towards the front door. The victim’s fiancé, who was home at the time, opened the doorway to greet her and witnessed the attack. The fiancé quickly tackled the suspect to the ground and fought with him. The suspect managed to break free and flee from the area in a white dinos02sidelogo3Cadillac. Later, a large kitchen knife, which was dropped by the suspect, was found on the front porch.

Responding officers checked the area and relayed a victim and suspect description to surrounding agencies.

At 03:20 a.m., Southfield police responded to a home invasion call, on the 29000 block of Brentwood, where a homeowner was fighting with a suspect that kicked in their front door and was attempting to steal a television. This was the same suspect from our crime.

A short time later, Oak Park police spotted the vehicle and arrested the suspect, who was identified as Angelo Lamar Taylor, a 45-years-old resident of Clinton Township, after a brief foot pursuit.

“We believe that Taylor saw that this young woman was by herself and followed her home.  This was a terrifying ordeal for her and we are all very grateful that her fiancé was there to fend off this attack,” said Chief Corrigan O’Donohue.essential

Taylor was also wanted on a felony warrant for motor vehicle theft and was a parole absconder. The white Cadillac Taylor was driving was stolen from Detroit on March 21, 2014.

On Monday, March 24, 2014, Taylor was arraigned on the following Royal Oak charges;  Attempt Home Invasion-First Degree (five year felony), Receiving and Concealing Stolen Property (five year felony and/or $10,000 or 3 times the value of the motor vehicle, whichever is greater. At this time investigators from Southfield and Oak Park are actively pursuing additional charges.

Taylor was arraigned by the Honorable Judge Derek Meinecke from the 44th District Court. Bond was set at $150,000, no 10%. The next scheduled 44th District Court date is set for March 28, 2014, at 09: 00 a.m.

Taylor has an extensive criminal history which includes stolen vehicles, drug crimes, home invasion, armed robbery and escape prison.
