OGDEN -- Police arrested a fugitive Saturday, wanted for attacking his girlfriend in an attic.
At 1:30 p.m. Jan. 27, according to police, Mitchell Edwin Williams, 28, went to his girlfriend's home in the 600 block of 28th Street.
He forced his way into his girlfriend's residence and demanded use of her car, Ogden Police Lt. Chad Ledford said.
When she refused, Williams held a knife to her throat and tried to steal her purse, police say. The incident occurred in the presence of a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old child.
Williams' girlfriend and a friend of hers managed to call the police, and Williams fled. Ledford said the woman was not injured in the incident.
Because Williams had fled the scene, the case went to the department's detective division, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
On Saturday, police tracked down his whereabouts to a building in the 800 block of 23rd Street.
With the help of a K-9 unit, police were able to flush Mitchell out of an attic he was hiding in.
Police booked Williams into Weber County Jail for domestic violence in the presence of a child, aggravated robbery, criminal mischief, aggravated burglary, obstructing justice, interfering with an arrest and violating a protective order.
