A phone call brought an end to a manhunt for a man wanted on federal weapons and state assault charges. 24 year old Marvin Baker was caught hiding in an apartment near 22nd and D Streets in Omaha shortly after 8:30 Tuesday night. U-S Marshal’s deputies had set up a perimeter that spanned several blocks for over two hours. Authorities went door to door and a canine unit was called in for assistance.
There was a brief struggle before Baker and his brother were cuffed and led away.
Earlier in the day, Omaha Police spotted Baker and another man inside a vehicle near a south Omaha park and attempted to stop the car. The driver took off. The car was later located several blocks away.
Baker was able to elude authorities Monday night in Council Bluffs. Baker was wanted on federal warrants for supervised release violations and he is also suspected of beating a woman in Omaha.
