Baggy pants trip robbery suspect, 16
COVINGTON -- Police said they caught a 16-year-old robbery suspect who previously eluded them after his baggy pants fell down, causing him to stumble as officers chased him.
"We literally caught him with his pants down," Lt. Jack West said.
The teenager, who was not identified because he is a juvenile, is suspected of robbing a man at gunpoint and stealing another man's car after beating him with a brick, Lt. West said. The suspect had run away from police several times in recent weeks, he said.
An officer spotted the teen standing on a street corner last Monday, called in for two backup officers, then tried to make an arrest. "He started to run, but his low-riding pants fell down and he stumbled to his knees," Lt. West said.
The teen was booked on warrants for armed robbery, carjacking, two counts of aggravated battery and being a child in need of supervision.
