25-year-old Damonte Turner, was arrested during this incident.

The suspects fled from police when they initiated a traffic stop.  Suspects stopped their vehicle in the area of Charles and 18th.  They fled on foot.

The police K-9 was able to successfully bite and hold the suspect, while officers were able to arrest them.

The suspect was taken to a local hospital for a dog bite.

Edit: Sources said the man was wanted for several robberies in the area.  RPD is saying he was a “suspicious person” and not related to the armed robberies.


Hailey L. is reporting:

“I just was caught in a police chase. on charles right before sam’s pizza. probably 10 squad suv’s rolled up and police were sprinting toward the one spirit place. very insane. a bunch of yelling and running but i couldn’t see any person… again this was on Charles in the construction zone between one spirit and sam’s”

We have had reports that a nearby business was robbed. Another source is reporting a police chase.  So it is not yet clear what happened, due to the police encryption. We will post updates as they become available
