A man who police say jumped twice from an apartment balcony, was Tasered and still eluded K9 officers was arrested Tuesday while he was hanging out at a mall.
Qaiyim Hill, 22, forced his way into his former girlfriend's apartment, near 850 West and 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 Tasered 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 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. marshal successfully used a Taser to subdue Hill.
Hill is wanted in Nevada on four felony warrants for aggravated robbery, distribution of drugs and possession of stolen firearms, according to the sheriff's office.
