A 16-year-old Detroit teen escaped Grosse Pointe Park police custody on Thursday afternoon after he was arrested for a home invasion in the Park.
At approximately 1 p.m. Thursday, police responded to a call about a home invasion and then set up a police perimeter as officers and the K-9 unit went house to house looking for the suspect.
During the search, police requested a lockdown for nearby Trombly Elementary School.
The search lasted for about 45 minutes until police found the suspect hiding in the garage of a home in the 800 block of Barrington and he was taken into custody, according to a report.
While at the Grosse Pointe Park Public Safety Office, the suspect escaped police custody and has not been located, Grosse Pointe Park Chief Dave Hiller said.
"We have spoken to his family and he will be arrested if and when he returns home," Hiller said.
