Man Arrested Inside Oswego Walmart After Running from Police

Feb 12, 2017 09:15AM, Published by Steven Jack, Categories: Today, News, Police




A Montgomery man faces several charges after running from Oswego Police Saturday night at the Walmart on Route 34.

According to Police Spokeswoman Cathy Nevara, at about 7:30 p.m. an Oswego Police officer encountered a car parked in a handicapped spot with a man and woman sitting inside. 

The car had no visible handicapped placard, so the man in the driver's seat was asked for identification, Nevara said.

After the man, later identified as Demetrius Bradley, 26, of Montgomery, allegedly provided what turned out to be false identification, he was asked to step outside the vehicle, Nevara said. 

While the officer attempted to arrest Bradley, the female passenger also exited the vehicle. The officer, who was alone, then called for backup, and Bradley was able to flee from the scene, running inside Walmart.

Additional officers from Oswego, the Kendall County Sheriff's Office and Montgomery Police all arrived on the scene shortly after and Bradley was found in the clearance section inside the store less than 10 minutes later, Nevara said.

Bradley faces charges of obstructing identification, resisting arrest and obstructing justice, Nevara said. He was also wanted on an outstanding warrant out of Aurora and was ticketed for several handicapped parking violations, Nevara said. The female passenger was not arrested.
