One of Two Fugitives Sought by Maine Police Arrested in New York
One of two men sought by Maine Police after a high speed chase has been arrested with a gunshot wound in Bronx, New York.
Dayshawn Middleton and Christopher Farrow eluded police on October 6th, leading them on a high speed pursuit that started in Waterville, traveled through several communities including Augusta, before the vehicle was tapped by a police cruiser in Richmond. Middleton was wanted in Connecticut for a robbery and both men were wanted for questioning in connection with a shooting incident in Skowhegan. The cruiser's airbag deployed and both fugitives fled on foot. Police in Maine asked the public for help locating the men, who were considered armed and dangerous.
On Sunday, New York Police arrested Dayshawn Middleton in the Bronx for the outstanding warrant in Connecticut. According to the Morning Sentinel, the 29-year-old was hospitalized for a gunshot wound, but police have not commented about how he was hurt. He will be extradited to Connecticut to face multiple charges, including robbery. Middleton will then be brought to Maine where he and Farrow are charged with criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, aggravated reckless conduct, aggravated criminal mischief, and assault.
Christopher Farrow remains at large and police say should be considered armed and dangerous.
Hailey Goetz, who police believed was also involved in the men's stay in Maine, is not considered a person of interest for the Skowhegan Police Department.
