Juvenile Chase

Posted on 26th November 2013 at 17:13

A 16 year-old boy is in custody at the Cowlitz County Juvenile Services Center, after he allegedly ran away from the facility early yesterday afternoon, then was chased down on foot by Longview Police. Around 12:45 yesterday afternoon, the boy’s father called 911, saying that the teen was planning to turn himself in on a couple of felony warrants. When they arrived at the building, he ran instead. The father speculated that the teen might be trying to get to his mother’s house in west Longview. About 20 minutes later, officers spotted the boy in the area of the Campus Towers. A foot chase ensued, going through the sports fields for Mark Morris High School. The teen was eventually chased down and arrested in the 21 hundred block of Ocean Beach Highway, and was booked into juvenile detention on the warrants for absconding while on probation and third-degree assault. It’s possible that new charges of obstructing an officer and resisting arrest could be added.
