YPSILANTI, Mich. (WJBK) -- A woman is hospitalized with serious injuries after a brutal attack in Ypsilanti Township.  Meanwhile, police are searching for the suspect -- Michael Joshua Glenn. (pictured)

Investigators say the victim went to a home Tuesday night to visit Glenn, her 21-year-old boyfriend, who got into her car.

"They got into an argument.  It escalated.  He began to punch her and to beat her up," said Derek Jackson with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office.

Glenn is also accused of stabbing her in the face multiple times, choking her, and when she fell out of the car, running over her multiple times before driving off.

Neighbors said the victim went door to door begging for help.  Some called 911, but only one neighbor allowed her inside.

"It takes a strong person, I mean, to have blunt force trauma, to get stabbed, to get run over by a car and still to be able to go off and to seek help and call 911," Jackson remarked.

The victim is in stable condition.  Sheriff's deputies discovered her car at a nearby apartment complex, but Glenn is believed to be on the run.

"He's around, potentially in the area.  Her car was found at Peninsula Place, which is not too far from where the incident happened (and) Eastern Michigan University's campus.  He's been known to frequent that area, so we definitely want to get it out to the public to be on the lookout," Jackson said.

If you have any information on Glenn's whereabouts, you're asked to call the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
