Police subdued a confused woman who turned violent Friday, and on Thursday, they caught up with a fugitive.
At 2:15 a.m. Friday, police went to the 2100 block of West 16th to look for a woman who was reportedly trying to get into multiple houses there.
The officer found the female, identified as Rebecca Glaze, 27.
According to the police report, Glaze appeared to be highly intoxicated. She was stumbling and falling over. The officer offered Glaze a ride home, which she accepted. Another officer in the vicinity followed as Glaze was driven home.
Upon arrival, Glaze became extremely upset and when the officer opened the door to the patrol car, she lunged at him and tried to punch him in the face, hitting his forearm instead, police spokeswoman Beth Kerr said.
Glaze fell to the ground, was handcuffed after a short struggle and put back into the patrol car, where she started to slam her face into the barrier between the front and back seats on the way to the jail, Kerr said.
Glaze continued this for several blocks, forcing the officer to stop and hobble her so she wouldn’t injure herself more.
At the jail, she fought with and spit at officers and detention officers, Kerr said.
Glaze was incarcerated and charged with attempted assault on an officer, resisting arrest, and obstructing police. Bond was set Friday at $10,000.
On Thursday at 2:20 p.m., an officer received information that a wanted man, Destin Hansen, 23, would be at 1203 W 10th.
Kerr said a search warrant was requested and executed at the home. Hansen was found in the attic and arrested.
He was incarcerated and charged with obstructing an officer, as well as four separate warrants — obstruction, shoplifting and trespassing, 2 other counts of trespassing and failure to appear to face the charge of committing prohibited acts on protected birds, Kerr said.
Hansen is held in jail on five separate bonds of $5,000 each, according to sheriff’s records.
