Suspect Warrant for Arrest on Waverly Place: Man Flees to Camelot Park Neighborhood, Gets Tasered, Arrested, Arlington Heights

Arlington Heights police responded about 9:45 AM Wednesday to a call for assistance from detectives for a fleeing suspect in the area of Waverly Place and Windsor Drive Arlington Heights, IL. Police detectives were working on a warrant for the arrest of a suspect wanted by another village or city in the block of 1300 Waverly Place. When the suspect saw the police, he fled west toward Camelot Park, 1005 East Suffield Drive.

Several Arlington Heights police units converged in the area and were also involved in a foot pursuit throughout Camelot Park. Arlington Heights Park District set up their own lock down temporarily, helping people seek shelter in the Camelot Park building facility.

The suspect ran back toward his residence on the south side of Waverly Place. Some police were still waiting at his residence. As the suspect ran by his residence, police ordered him to stop, but he kept fleeing. He was Tasered, and was stopped just east of his residence on a south side parkway of Waverly Place.

Arlington Heights firefighter/paramedics were called to the scene to evaluate the suspect and transport him to Northwest Community Hospital as a precaution. He was conscious and appeared physically comfortable as he was transported to Northwest Community Hospital in custody with police following.

A witness in the neighborhood said the man was known to be living with his grandparents.

No police officers were known to be injured in the foot pursuit. A K-9 search was also underway, as police were looking for any possible weapons or contraband tossed in the neighborhood during the foot pursuit.

Currently police did not release the reason for the warrant and arrest, but now the suspect will also probably be charged with fleeing police and/or resisting arrest.
