Last night at about 10:45, Officer Jimmy Woods was dispatched to a disturbance in the 2800 block of North Sixth Street. A calling party had notified APD Dispatch that her daughter had been in a sexual relationship with a male suspect and was upset about the matter. Sgt. Jason Haak assisted in this investigation. The male suspect was present upon police arrival. The investigation revealed that the suspect had sexual intercourse with a female minor under the age of 14. The suspect was arrested for aggravated sexual assault of a child. This investigation continues.
Last night at about 11:15, Officer Damien Hutchinson attempted to contact a motorist after observing the motorist accelerate quickly while traveling eastbound on South 14th Street. Officer Hutchinson confirmed the motorist was speeding after pacing the motorist and activated his emergency lights. The motorist initially failed to stop promptly and continued to drive until stopping around South 15th Street. As soon as the motorist stopped the vehicle, at least two occupants got out and fled on foot. Officer Hutchinson gave chase and helped establish a perimeter. Officer Hutchinson later found one male subject hiding in the backyard of a residence in the 1600 block of Woodard Street. This subject was arrested but another male subject was not located. The investigation also revealed a clear pipe located inside the vehicle contained a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine. The male subject was arrested for possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and for evading detention.
