On September 14, 2015, at approximately 4:30 p.m., Officers Novak #10545, Blow #10622, Jameson #9649, and Griffin #10507, took initiative and attempted to locate a known felony suspect, 22 year-old Joseph Worthy, who was wanted for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Officers had knowledge that Worthy frequented the 10700 block of Ferguson Road.
Several officers had previous encounters with Worthy and attempted to make an arrest, however Worthy always evaded on foot. This particular day, the officers observed Worthy in the 10700 block of Ferguson Road but this time they had a game plan. Like previous times, Worthy did exactly what he had done before and fled on foot, however the officers set up a perimeter and were able to catch Worthy despite which direction he ran. Officers caught up with Worthy on foot and placed him under arrest. Though it was not an easy arrest, due to the suspect putting up a fight, the officers were able to apprehend the suspect for an Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon warrant, in addition to the charge of Evading Arrest on Foot. These officers did an outstanding job!!!
