A man who police say jumped twice from an apartment balcony, was Tased and still eluded K9 officers was arrested Tuesday while he was hanging out at the mall.
Qaiyim Hill, 22, forced his way into his former girlfriend's apartment, near 850 W. 3900 South, and refused to leave Sunday night, according to the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office.
When deputies arrived, Hill jumped from a third floor balcony to the ground, where he was Tased by police, but still managed to escape toward the Jordan River. Police and K9 officers from six jurisdictions searched for Hill in the brush, and later found the man inside a vacant apartment. That's when, police said, he jumped from a second story balcony and ran from the area.
On Tuesday, members of the Joint Criminal Apprehension Team spotted Hill at the Gateway Mall in downtown Salt Lake City around 2:15 p.m., according to the sheriff's office.
And, once again, Hill tried to flee, police said.
This time, however, a U.S. Marshall was able to successfully use a Taser to subdue Hill.
Hill was wanted out of Nevada on four felony warrants for aggravated robbery, distribution of drugs and possession of stolen firearms, according the sheriff's office.
