Suspect Caught in the 2800 Block of North Dunton Avenue
Arlington Heights police were searching the area of 3300 North Carriageway and Daniels Court on the north side of Arlington Heights after a grandson apparently attacked his grandmother on the first floor of a multidwelling condo/apartment style building at 3300 North Carriageway. The attack — possibly involving a knife — occurred at about 5:00 p.m. Thursday.
The suspect is described as a male/white in his 20’s, 5′ 5″ with very short hair, wearing T-shirt and jeans. His shirt had long sleeves and his pants were baggy pants. The suspect may have been driving a Toyota Corolla, possibly with Colorado license plates. He is allegedly the grandson of the victim.

Police were also searching the area of 3100 North Windsor for a suspicious person running through backyards in that neighborhood. The suspect was seen in backyards running toward Fleming. Police received multiple calls for a person jumping fences in the area. Police were also tracking in the area of the 400 block of Hackberry near the creek in the neighborhood. The officer with the K-9 unit was tracking the suspect’s scent on Hackberry, just east of Arlington Heights Road when he saw someone matching the description near Burr Oak Drive and Arlington Heights Road. The officer double-checked the description and soon the suspect was fleeing toward Henry Street and Arlington Heights Road. Several police squads from Arlington Heights and Buffalo Grove police departments converged in the area and set up a perimeter. Police lost sight of the suspect, but soon sighted him again running through yards near Henry Street and Dunton Avenue. With guns drawn, the police ordered the suspect to halt, and announced he was in custody on Dunton Avenue, just north of East Berkley Drive. The suspect was transported to Arlington Heights Police Department headquarters in downtown Arlington Heights.
The condition of the grandmother is unknown as of 6:45 pm.
