SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — An arrest warrant has been issued for a man accused of making threats, possibly with a gun, and then running from officers, South Haven police say.
Warrants for felonious assault and resisting and obstructing police have been issued for Benjamin William Ewart, 33, the South Haven Police Department said in a Thursday release.
On Tuesday, police were called about a suspect making “assaultive threats” who was possibly armed with a gun in the 16000 block of 77th Street in South Haven Township, police say.
