Thermo imaging led to the arrest of an Alexandria man who was involved in a fight Monday night.
Christopher Patton, 30, was arrested on assault charges after Alexandria police responded to 1715 Nokomis Street around 10 p.m. on December 3. A witness reported that Patton had broken a female’s arm, police said.
Another witness, Paris Nicole White, 22 of Alexandria, was arrested at the scene for obstructing legal process and disorderly conduct. She was transported to the Douglas County Jail.
Patton fled the scene and was found hiding in a field behind an apartment complex. Officers used a thermo imaging device that detects heat sources to locate Patton. The suspect attempted to flee officers but was apprehended by a Douglas County sheriff’s office deputy and his K-9 partner.
The victim was treated for injuries at the Douglas County Hospital.
