City of Fredericksburg Police Officers responded Monday to a report of a fight involving a male subject who was armed with a handgun.
A female resident of a home in the 700 block of Hanson Ave. reported she was having a family get together April 30 when a male acquaintance came over and started a fight. "During the argument, the subject displayed a handgun and made threats to the group assembled at the home," Natatia Bledsoe, Fredericskburg Police spokesperson, said.
The female pulled out her phone to call 911, and the male subject grabbed the phone and ran from the scene.
Responding officers chased the male on foot along the canal path and another two officers in patrol cars spotted the male as he came out of the wooded area along Sam Perry Boulevard, Bledsoe said. The male ran back into the woods and along the power line behind the hospital and was taken into custody by officers and a Fredericksburg Sheriff’s deputy, who had approached on foot from the other side of the canal.
During the search of the subject incident to arrest, a quantity of marijuana was found on his person. Fredericksburg K-9 Max was brought to the scene and conducted a search for further evidence. "The K-9 located the subject’s gun and a gun magazine along the route where he was seen running away from pursuing officers," Bledsoe said.
