By Journal Staff

MARQUETTE — A 33-year-old man remains in the Marquette County Jail, facing an eight-count felony warrant.

On Monday, Forsyth Township Police Department officers responded to a domestic violence incident on the 100 block of Fury Street at K.I. Sawyer, according to a FTPD press release.

Upon arrival, officers contacted the victim and learned the suspect, Branden Klyk, had fled the area prior to the officers’ arrival.

After a review of the case, the eight-county felony warrant was authorized by the Marquette County Prosecutor’s Office, according to the release.

The charges are:

≤ Assault and domestic assault (third offense)

≤ Assault with intent to do bodily harm less than murder (two counts)

≤ Unlawful imprisonment

≤ Torture

≤ Criminal sexual conduct first degree

≤ Malicious destruction of property

≤ Larceny in a building

With the assistance of the State of Michigan Probation/Parole Division, officers located Klyk in the Alger County area. On Wednesday, Klyk turned himself in to the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office without incident.

Klyk was arraigned in 96th District Court in Marquette and remains lodged in the Marquette County Jail on a $280,000 bond.

The Forsyth Township Police Department was assisted by the Michigan State Police Negaunee Post and the Michigan Department of Correction/Probation/Parole Division (Marquette and Alger counties).
