  • Press Release 060614(05)-Police Search for Fleeing Man in North San Angelo

    Fri, Jun 06, 2014 - 05:58 PM

    A man who fled from police is still at large after an extensive search in North San Angelo this afternoon.

     

    At approximately 2:32 p.m. today, San Angelo Police were dispatched to an unknown problem at a residence in the 1200 block of Koberlin Street.  While responding to the location, police received additional information that a party involved in the incident left the location with a child passenger in a silver-colored Chrysler Sebring. 

     

    An officer responding to the call observed the vehicle in question and attempted to conduct a traffic stop near 19th and Wade.  During this attempt, a male passenger jumped out of the vehicle and ran away.  He was last seen running westbound in the North alley of 19th Street and Wade.  The subject was described as a light-complected Hispanic male who was armed with a long gun.    

     

    Police established a large perimeter in the area and requested a K9 Team to the location to conduct a track; however, the suspect was not located.   Police have tentatively identified the suspect whom they believe may have run due to an outstanding warrant. 

     

    The other occupants of the vehicle were detained and questioned by police.  Their identities are not being released at this time.   An eleven-month-old male child was located inside the vehicle, unharmed.  The child was later released to his mother at the scene.

     

    This is an ongoing investigation and search.  More information will be released when it becomes available.
