A citizen tackled a burglary suspect who was running from police Saturday night in Harrisburg , police said in a press release.
Police responded to Broad Street Market just before 11 p.m. on Sunday night where a witness saw a man in dark clothes climb into the market through a window. Police ordered the man, Richard Green, 43, to surrender. When he didn't, they sent a K-9 into the building.
Almost immediately, Green kicked open a side door to get out of the building. Despite calls from police to stop and surrender, Green ran off. Several officers chased him into a neighborhood. When Green tried to scale a fence in the neighborhood, a nearby resident tackled him.
Officers continued to order Green to stop resisting arrest. They used a tazer to get him handcuffed. Green had a mask, flashlight, gloves, and a two-way radio in his pockets. He has been charged with burglary, resisting arrest, escape and possession of instruments of a crime.
Police say it appeared Green had an accomplice but that person was not located.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Lieutenant Robert Fegan at 717-255-3114 or email email@example.com.
