At 8:23 p.m. East Division Patrol officers, assisted by officers with the East Quick Response Unit, responded to a suspicious person call on Highfield Park Drive.
A resident called police to report that two people were checking out vehicles in the parking lot. When police arrived, one man attempted to flee but was caught by officers. Police recovered a knife that the fleeing suspect had thrown while running from the officers.
