Man bolts cops, but quickly nabbed in SLC domestic violence case

First Published Jun 03 2013 12:37 pm • Last Updated Jun 04 2013 06:33 am

A male domestic violence suspect bolted through the front door as Salt Lake City police officers questioned the female victim, but the man’s brazen bid for freedom was short-lived.

Police say the 34-year-old man ran out the door of the southeast Salt Lake City home near 2600 South and 600 East about 1 a.m. Officers were questioning a woman at the time — in the doorway.

After a brief foot chase, the suspect was taken into custody without further incident.

He was booked into Salt Lake County Jail on suspicion of second-degree felony aggravated assault, third-degree felony domestic violence in the presence of a child and failure to stop at the command of a police officer, a class A misdemeanor.

A probable cause statement alleged the suspect choked the woman into unconsciousness in the presence of an 11-year-old child.

He remained behind bars Monday in lieu of $2,337 bail.
