BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — Police are searching for a suspect who broke into a Battle Creek home and attacked a man with a knife.
The male suspect forced his way into the home in the 5600 block of Dahlia Drive near M-66 around 10 p.m. Sunday, according to police. After assaulting the victim with a knife, the suspect took off.
The victim was taken to a hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.
The Battle Creek Police Department was able to identify the suspect as Bruce Mireles, but has not been able to locate him. He is wanted on attempted murder and home invasion charges.
Mireles is believed to have fled the scene of the stabbing in a white Dodge Magnum. That vehicle was found around 7:30 p.m. Monday on Dahlia Drive on the south side of Battle Creek. The driver and owner of the car — not Mireles — was detained. Police said they found two bags of cocaine, marijuana and several hundred dollars in cash on his person and in the car. Police confiscated the car and money.
The driver, a 26-year-old Battle Creek man, was jailed on felony drug charges.
Anyone with information about where Mireles may be is asked to call BCPD at 269.781.0911 or Silent Observer at 269.964.3888.
