MAN CHASES KIDS WITH KNIFE
COPS CAPTURE HIM WITHIN MINUTESPolice responded in force after receiving multiple calls of a black male with no shirt on chasing kids with a knife in the area of West Ave. and Second. As Police responded they were told the man took off running through the First Merit parking lot towards City Hall, still with the knife in hand.
Police Dispatchers were quickly notifying City Hall to lock down in case the man wanted to get inside.
As Police arrived they found the man outside of City Hall on the Second Street Side. Police took the man to the ground and subdued him before taking him into custody.
Students from Elyria High School stood on the opposite side of Second Street and said they were very happy to see the man in custody.
