DEARBORN, MI – On Wednesday July 3rd, 2019, a Dearborn patrol officer observed two 17-year-old males in the area of Prospect and Schlaff. The two subjects were riding mini-bikes on the sidewalk, and the officer determined that both bikes were not street legal, as they did not have the proper safety equipment attached to the bikes.
As the officer attempted to stop the two, one of the subjects, Yousif Al-Sudani, 17-year-old, fled the scene on the bike, into the residential neighborhood north of Prospect. A brief pursuit ensued, in which Al-Sudani made multiple dangerous traffic violations in an attempt to elude the officer. Al-Sudani eventually jumped off the bike and fled on foot into his home. After a few moments, Al-Sudani exited the home and surrendered to officers.
The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office charged Al-Sudani with flee and elude. Al-Sudani was arraigned (out-county) and was given a $15,000 bond with a GPS tether to be attached.
As the officer pursued Al-Sudani, the second rider, Nader Harb, 17-years-old, left the scene of the original stop.
Harb began driving quickly through the neighborhood, in an attempt to get out of the area. During this time, Harb drove the wrong way down Robertson, a one-way residential street.
A five-year-old female was attempting to cross the street as Harb traveled the wrong-way down the roadway. Harb struck the child with his mini-bike, causing both he and the child to fall to the ground. The child suffered a broken leg as a result of the crash, but is expected to make a full recovery. After striking the child, Harb fled the scene on the mini-bike, failing to stop and identify himself, or render aid to the child.
The Wayne County Prosecutor charged Harb with Reckless Driving Causing Serious Impairment of a Bodily Function, and Leaving the Scene of a Serious Injury Accident. Harb was arraigned in front of 19th District Court Judge Salamey on June 8, 2019. Harb was issued a $5,000 bond, with a GPS tether to be attached.
Both arrestees have probable cause conferences on August 2nd.
