On April 27th at 10:30 AM, APD officers were dispatched to the 1500 block of Birch on a residential alarm.
Officers turned onto the street and saw a suspect run from the house and get into a gray Chevrolet Malibu. The suspect drove away before officers could stop him.

The homeowner reported that a TV and jewelry were missing. 
At 1 a.m. on April 28th, officers located the suspect vehicle at an apartment on the 900 block of Charlotte.
Officers attempted to contact the resident. 
Before officers could serve a search warrant, a neighbor came out yelling at the officers. The suspect in the apartment that the officers were knocking at had broken through the wall and assaulted the male in the neighboring apartment. The suspect then jumped off of the balcony and ran on foot. 
Officers caught the suspect in the 1700 block of Amarillo Blvd East. 
Officers detained 26-year-old Michael Adrian Jimenez and served the search warrant on the apartment. Officers located the young child in the apartment.  He was turned over to a family member.
