VICTIM RESTRAINS SUSPECT: On Sunday, September 16, 2018, at approximately 1:00 a.m., Rockford Police officers were called to the 1000 block of 14th Street for a burglary to a vehicle.
Before officers arrived, they learned the victim and his sister followed the suspect vehicle after the suspect broke into the male victim’s truck. The suspect pulled his vehicle over at 16th Street and 10th Avenue, got out and confronted the male victim.
The two got into a physical altercation before the male victim tackled the suspect to the ground and held him there until officers arrived a few minutes later. The suspect was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries sustained during the altercation. A stolen vehicle was also recovered.
Upon further review, the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office authorized the below listed charges against the suspect.
Rodriquez Bunton, 44, Rockford: Burglary to a Vehicle, Aggravated Battery, Unlawful Possession of a Stolen Vehicle
Bunton was lodged in the Winnebago County Jail. The charges against Bunton are merely accusations. As in all cases, the suspect is considered innocent unless proven guilty in court.
Several sources have contacted us this morning in reference to numerous police officers working a scene in the area of Midway, Pierce, Paradise, Overdene.
It sounds like police may have had a police perimeter set up in the area for a violent crime suspect. We were told that there was a shooting incident in the area and police were looking for the alleged suspect. But it is not yet confirmed.
Rockford police said no comment and their call log shows no police calls in that area around the time that everybody was reporting multiple police officers in that area.
As you know the Rockford police and local police encrypted the police radio systems, and now they said there’s no comment on this call so we just have to wait and see if the police decide to release any information to the public.
We will try to update this if more information becomes available
Update: After posting this, another source said this: Sue Mitchell “He crashed his truck in neighbors yard and took off running police on his heels he jumped out while truck was crashing”
it was another violent night in the city of Rockford
Below are just a couple of the violent crime police calls.
In progress person:Shooting, Stabbing, Robbery, Kidnapping & In Progress Property: Home invasion, burglary
Weapons violations/Shots Fired:
Below are the medical assist calls. As you know the local police label some major violent crimes such as murders, as medical assist. not all of these medical assistants are violent crimes but is safe to assume some of them might be because of the previous actions and labeling from the local police.
