are searching for a suspect in a stabbing incident that occurred at approximately 4 a.m. today at the on Gratiot.
A 55-year-old female suffered a knife wound to the side of the head and ear and was taken to Mount Clemens Regional Hospital for treatment. Chesterfield Det. Sgt. Deron Myers said the woman's injuries were not life threatening.
Police are looking for Annessiah Lynn Bush. The Macomb County Prosecutor's Office has issued a warrant for Bush, charging her with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, a 10-year felony.
Bush, a 32-year-old black female, about 5 foot 7 inches tall, with long black hair, fled the area on foot. She was last seen wearing blue jeans and a short sleeve shirt heading southbound on Gratiot.
Before grabbing a knife from the kitchen counter and striking the victim in the ear, the suspect threw bleach into the victim's face, Myers said. He added it is believed the pair were in a dating relationship.
The suspect currently has an outstanding felony warrant for her arrest for violating her probation on an unrelated “assault with dangerous weapon” charge, according to police.
Chesterfield Police set up a perimeter in the Gratiot and 23 Mile Road area and employed the Macomb County Sheriff's K9 unit to search the area. However, both attempts were unsuccessful and the suspect is still at large.
Police advise that Bush has an extensive criminal history and "should be considered armed and dangerous."
Anyone with information is asked to call the Chesterfield Township Police at 586-949-2322.
The Chesterfield Motor Inn is located at 50900 Gratiot, near 23 Mile Road.
