Posted: Updated:

Investigators need your help finding a local man wanted for questioning in the assault of a woman. 

The Huron County Sheriff's Department says the 24-year-old woman told them she was physically assaulted and held against her will by 22-year-old Shawn Newland Saturday at a home in Colfax Township. Newland is from Bad Axe. 

The woman says she was held against her will, physically assaulted with a knife. The woman was able to leave at one point in the evening.

Bad Axe Police spotted Newland driving in town and that's when he led them on a chase.

Investigators say he then fled into a wooded area where they search for him until 4:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

Newland is described as 5-foot-8, 180 pounds with hazel eyes and black hair.

If you've seen Newland, police are asking that you call 911.
