A phone call brought an end to a manhunt for a man wanted on weapons and assault charges. Twenty-four-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. 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. Authorities went door to door and a canine unit was called in for assistance. 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.
