That little red circle in photo is the suspect, just prior to his being 'taken down' by Pasco Police. You can run, but you can't hide.

Authorities captured 18-year-old Kevin Mauricio Contreras of Pasco after he allegedly assaulted a female victim with whom Police said he had a domestic violence qualifying relationship.

Officers responding scoured the area and quickly located Conteras, but he was not willing to go peacefully.  He tried to run, and there was a brief scuffle when he was caught, but officers "displayed" a Taser and it seemed to change his attitude.

Kudos to Pasco Police for catching him so quickly.
