Woman in custody after fleeing from St. George police, male suspect outstanding
ST. GEORGE, Utah — Police are searching for a man who fled from them after almost hitting people on a bike path with a moped Wednesday morning.
Sgt. Tiffany Mitchell, with St. George police, said they had extra patrols in the area because of an increase in vehicle burglaries when officers noticed a man and a woman on an unregistered moped.
When officers attempted to contact the two suspects, they fled on the moped, and police initially didn’t follow them.
It wasn’t until the suspects drove into a crowded bike bath and almost hit a bunch of people that police placed a patrol car on the bike path to protect bystanders, Mitchell said.
The moped ended up crashing near River Road and Riverside Drive, where the woman suspect hid in nearby bushes, and the male suspect fled on foot.
Mitchell said the woman was arrested without further issues and will likely be charged with evading police.
In a Facebook live video, Mitchell said the man is still outstanding and is described as a white male, wearing all black clothing, with one shoe.
