Omaha, NE - Police arrested a man wanted for attempted murder, assault on a police officer and theft.
An Omaha police officer spotted suspect Andrew Brown Thursday afternoon.
Brown was driving a silver sedan and when the officer tried to stop him, Brown sped off. He fled from a traffic stop, speeding down I-480. Brown then got off on 30th Street, got back on I-80 Eastm and exited again on 13th street. He drove til he abandoned his car near 16th and B streets.
Police blocked off the area and chased him on foot. They eventually arrested him.
"All I seen was I'll be squad cars. Converging in the cops with their guns Out and I thought wow don't shoot I better get away from the window first," said Edward Ellison, who witnessed the chase.
Police say they caught Brown shortly after he hid underneath a small porch. Neighbors say he also tired to go into a home's basement, but the homeowner shoo'd him out.
"Beautiful day. It's sorry somebody has to try to ruin it," said Dan Jensen, who lives nextdoor to where Brown hid.
