The Eastern Michigan University Department of Public Safety is investigating a felonious domestic assault that occurred at approximately 4 a.m. this morning at the Westview Apartments.

The victim, who is an EMU student, reported to the police that she was held at gunpoint and threatened by a known acquaintance who forcibly removed her from her apartment.

The suspect demanded the victim leave her home and ride with him at gunpoint. The victim said she was later dropped off at her apartment on campus, where the suspect fled in a yellow Ford Escape with a Michigan license plate of CFH3469, according to a timely warning to the university community.

According to police, the victim sustained no injuries.

Police are currently searching for Darnell Dwayne Garris, who is not an EMU student. Garris is believed to be heading toward Detroit and is described as an African American male, 6’0”, 150 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
