The suspect was arrested a short time later and lodged in the Houghton County Jail on charges of felonious assault.

The Houghton County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Michigan State Police troopers from the Calumet Post and Wakefield Posts, along with deputies from the Ontonagon County Sheriff’s Office.
