A foot chase that started near 23rd and Marion finished up nearly 30 minutes later when SPD officers found their suspect hiding behind a building near 21st and Union just after 3 PM Friday afternoon.
We have not been able to determine what started the chase but according to police radio, officers were concerned that the suspect being pursued could be armed with a handgun. They searched the area for the suspect described as a black male, 18 to early 20s, with a mustache and wearing baggy blue jeans, a black puffy jacket, and a red hat.
We’ll try to follow up with SPD about the chase and the suspect.
the red hat was probably a mistake.
