KENT COUNTY, Mich. — A man wanted on criminal sexual conduct and fleeing police charges is now behind bars following a brief manhunt.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office says in a release that Timothy David Perry, 32, fled from officials who tried to arrest him on Feb. 18.  He allegedly drove at a high speed while going the wrong way along Broadmoor Avenue SE, and police called off the pursuit.

His vehicle was later found abandoned in Caledonia and investigators believe he was picked up by an acquaintance and taken to the Kentwood area.

Perry faces first- and second-degree criminal sexual conduct charges involving a person under 13 years old, fleeing and eluding police and a parole violation.

Authorities say that he has a prior conviction of second-degree CSC and served time in prison for assault before being paroled on June 27, 2017.
