Joshua Slone, 33, of South Porter Drive, and Carrie Durham, 25, of Charlie Norris Road, were charged Tuesday morning with fleeing from police after officers responded to a disturbance call, according to a news release from the Richmond Police Department.
At about 9 a.m., officers arrived at the 200 block of South Porter Drive to investigate a report of a woman screaming.
Upon arrival, the officers encountered Slone and Durham. The officers were told Slone had assaulted Durham, at which point he fled on foot. However, the officers caught up with Slone and took him into custody, according to the police report.
When the officers returned to where Durham had been, they said she was attempting to hide in nearby bushes. She then attempted to flee on foot but was apprehended after a short chase, the report stated.
Slone and Durham were both charged with second-degree evading arrest, and Slone also was charged with resisting arrest.
Police later discovered that Madison Circuit had issued warrants for Durham on charges of failure to appear and failure to pay child support. A Madison District warrant for contempt of court also was served on her.
