The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has arrested two residents of Boswell, PA, on charges resulting from the attempted theft of a bicycle and one suspect's subsequent attempt to run over deputies, the office has announced. About 2:15 p.m. on May 8, a deputy responded to a call from a resident in the 3100 block of Maiden Lane in Sarasota. When the home- owner spotted a man and woman in the process of stealing his bicycle, the home- owner attempted to detain the man, resulting in the man punching the homeowner, a news release explains. When a deputy arrived on the scene, the release says, he separated the suspect and the homeowner. The female suspect fled on foot, the release notes. Then the male suspect ran to the couple's vehicle and left the area, the release continues. As deputies began pursuing the male suspect, the female suspect was apprehended a short distance from the Maiden Lane home, the release adds. At the intersection of Tuttle Avenue and Webber Street, it says, the suspect's vehicle was stopped in traffic, so deputies approached it and ordered the suspect out of the vehicle. When he refused their commands, the release continues, the deputies reached inside the vehicle in an attempt to arrest him, but the suspect accelerated through the intersection, resulting in the deputies having to jump out of the way to avoid being struck. Deputies continued to search the area, finally locating the suspect's vehicle abandoned in the 1700 block of Jefferson Avenue, the release notes Sheriff's Office TAC, Patrol and K-9 units, along with Sarasota Police officers and K-9 units, set up a perimeter and continued to look for the suspect, the release says.

Suter, 46, with one count of Residential Burglary, one count of Misdemeanor Battery, one count of Fleeing to Elude and two counts of Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer.
