A foot pursuit ended in the arrest of two suspects, one that day and the other after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Hagen Wray Williams, 18, of the 100 block of Emerald Drive, was arrested by Minden police for resisting an officer and resisting an officer with force.
Jordan Tyler Dunn, 18, was arrested on a warrant for resisting an officer.
Police Chief Steve Cropper says an officer was dispatched around 3 p.m. Monday to the 100 block of Emerald Drive in reference to a disturbance. On his way to the address, Officer Brandon Coker was advised the suspect they were looking for regarding the disturbance was seen walking down Park Highway with another subject, identified as Dunn.
“Coker made contact with the suspect and asked for his identification,” he said. “The suspect indicated he did not have it, and when asked his name, he refused to give it.”
At that time, the suspect, identified as Williams, began to walk away from Coker. Williams was asked to come back to the patrol unit, and when Coker began to handcuff him, he pulled away, Cropper said.
He took off and a foot pursuit ensued. Williams was caught several yards down the road and following a brief struggle, Williams was placed under arrest. At the time of the incident, Dunn was not captured, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
On Tuesday, officers went to the 900 block of Center Street where they located Dunn and placed him under arrest.
Williams was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
