ATLANTIC CITY — Police arrested a fugitive from New York on Wednesday after he fled a domestic dispute.
At 11:53 a.m., officers responded to the Rodeway Inn on Pacific Avenue, where the 911 caller reported the suspect, Ramel Harris, 35, was armed with a handgun and knife, police said.
As officers responded, surveillance center personnel watched Harris flee toward the Boardwalk. He was then followed by surveillance cameras along the Boardwalk. Detectives confronted Harris in the beach block of Morris Avenue and arrested him after a brief struggle.
Harris, who initially gave officers a fake name, was found with a knife, but officers did not find a gun.
He had a warrant for his arrest for robbery in New York City and was charged with being a fugitive from justice, unlawful possession of a weapon, obstruction and resisting arrest.
