Suspect found hiding in trunk

City police arrested two people at St. Lawrence Park early Tuesday after they allegedly tried to flee officers in a vehicle – one of them in the trunk.

City police were dispatched just after midnight in response to reports of a female screaming.

Park staff directed officers to an occupied site; they located a 24-year-old woman who said she had been in an argument with her boyfriend. She also indicated that the man was not at the site but was in the washroom at the campground, police said later Tuesday.

A 31-year-old man, who was found hiding behind a tent, allegedly provided a false name to officers. While police continued to speak to witnesses, the woman tried to leave in her vehicle, said police.

As she was leaving, police learned of the real identity of the man; he is on bail conditions to be in his residence and not to communicate with the woman, police said.

Police stopped the vehicle and found the man hiding in the trunk. Police added the man was taken into custody “after a struggle.”

Police charged the man with two counts of failing to comply with a release order as well as with breach of probation and obstructing police. He was held in custody for a bail hearing. The woman was released at the scene after being charged with obstructing police.
