UPDATE: The suspect arrested and booked this morning for the two charges described in the earlier release is 47-year-old Bradley Eugene Meason.
At 2:54 a.m. Thursday, Amarillo Police responded to a motor vehicle striking a house and leaving the scene on the 4300 block of Alicia.
The resident told officers that she knows the suspect through mutual acquaintances, and had seen and talked to the suspect earlier in the evening at a restaurant/bar.
After she left the business, the suspect started texting and calling her. He then came to her home and knocked on the front door repeatedly. He told her that if she did not open the door, he would break in.
She refused to open the door and a few moments later the suspect drove a silver 2014 Dodge pickup into the wall of the home, doing extensive damage and entering the living room area.
The suspect got out of the vehicle and threatened her. He then got back into the truck and left the scene.
Officers followed the debris to apartments on the 7500 block of Hillside, where the suspect was believed to reside.
Police found the truck parked in an open garage at the apartments with extensive damage from the incident.
Officers went to an upstairs apartment to locate the suspect. After loud noises, police saw the suspect running north across the lot near their patrol units. The officers chased him a short distance before taking him into custody.
The suspect was taken to the Randall County Jail and is awaiting booking on charges of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and a second charge of Evading Arrest/Detention. His name will be released when he is booked.
There were two juveniles in the home with the complainant at the time of the assault. At this time, no injuries have been reported.
