Police search Walnut Street area, locate warrant suspect
UPDATED 9:25 a.m., Thursday.
It took more than an hour, but police did nab a warrant suspect late this afternoon after a police officer spotted him on Walnut Street, Batavia.
The suspect was listed as a missing person and also had a county arrest warrant. The charges are not listed in in the Batavia PD press release. The Batavian is not publishing the suspect's name at this time.
The youth is a resident of Walnut Street.
Officer Chad Richards spotted the youth walking on Walnut and when he turned around, the suspect fled. Backup units were called from Batavia PD and the Sheriff's Office, including Deputy Chris Erion with K-9 Destro.
Officers cordoned off the area and conducted a search. After the search area was expanded, the suspect was spotted on Franklin Avenue and taken into custody.
Assisting in the search were Sgt. Dan Coffey, Det. Thad Mart, Det. Eric Hill, Officer James Defreze, Officer Jason Ivison, Officer Wojtaszczyk along with Det. Paul Caffo and Investigator Greg Walker.
The youth was taken into custody on Franklin by Mart and Defreze.
I wonder if he is the suspect in the robbery and/or assault on Washington/State St. ???
The batavian has been misinformed.....their is no county warrant and further more and he ran away from the custody of county because they plsced him in a facility where he was a victim of abuse on a daily basis. He is a child and a victim not a criminal.he wadny even locate in Batavia at the times those robberies occurred so why don't you stop trying to penalize one person for other crimes.
He also turned himself in. Not after the search was expanded the police did not find him he decided to turn himself over to the police. The police focused on the wrong area if he wanted to he could of either stayed where he was or went the other way and the police would still be sitting lookin for him. HE TURNED HIMSELF OVER.
Oh OK, all I really said us "I wonder..."
That will teach you to wonder, Gary.
The story accurately reflects what police officers told me.
Hmmm very ineresting. Believe it or not I am not going to comment further except to mention that when the suspect was living with his grandmother. We often had knocks on the door from police agencies looking for this individual. He used his age to avoid prosecution for quite a while and possibly was one of the reasons his relatives moved to Walnut St. from our neighborhood.
So I believe fully that Howard's article and what the police related to him is pretty accurate.
They are always "just children" when the law is after them but tell them they are children and you will be told to shut up and that they know everything. just saying.
Rather than hearing they are just children…I would love to hear how respectful they are, what a good student they are, role model….anything other than just a child.
LOL Lorie.....not this one, if it's the wonderful little child I suspect then you wont be hearing that about this one. He already knows how to game the system. He makes threats to adults around him in front of police because he knew he was too young to be arrested. However I do believe he is old enough now to begin to enjoy the full effect of our judicial system.
Sounds almost like you know this child ....from the tone of your posts. :)
The Batavian is not publishing the suspect's name at this time....You all ready did ..The day before you put out a story about this same kid missing.,,,,
Funny kyle. I do not really know the "child". However, it is typical to hear a parent say they are just a child when you tell them to stop acting like a hooligan (my moms favoriteword). But five min later you hear the loud mouthed brat screaming at the parent that they get to do what they want. Cause they are in charge of themselves. Not only do those kids need a spanking but so do the parents. I am not one for any hitting but dang.
Mark, different kid.
Yeah Mark that missing kid looks similar, I had to look twice thinking it was the same kid this article was about.... however it's not the same kid.
A couple of comments deleted.
Keep your personal business out it.
No personal attacks.
I agree Howard but to be fair, if my posts content were personal attacks I do believe Melissa's Post #14 in this thread also qualifies for deletion on the same grounds. I tried to respond to that post without violating the no personal attacks rules you had as best I could. But that post #14 of hers also violates it doesn't it?
Thank you Howard .....
These same kids are always sweet when caught by te police.
LOL Julie, exactly, you must have inherited them as neighbors. Melissa's comments are interesting though as she addressed this particular incident. But less than 12 months ago....
Take notice of this part of the above article:
Melissa A. Broadbent, 35, of 52 Walnut St., Batavia, is charged with obligation of a parent or guardian. Broadbent was arrested because of alleged curfew violations after her 15-year-old son was apprehended following an investigation of a report that two males were attempting to break into cars near the fire hall. The alleged incident was reported at 11:26 p.m., Sunday. Also charged was Priscilla M. Aiken, 40, of 2 Miller Ave., Batavia.
I guess you could say this is an ongoing thing, definately puts a different spin on her comments on this incident.
