SHREWSBURY – A suspect fleeing on foot resulted in the arrest of a Worcester man.

Jordan Nelson, 20, was arrested on two outstanding felony warrants and resisting arrest. 

At approximately 1:42 p.m. on Dec. 13, Shrewsbury police received a 911 call from a resident who lives on Lake Street. In a press release, police said that the call was disconnected before the dispatcher could learn what was the problem. 

When officers arrived at the scene, they later reported that a man – allegedly Nelson – fled out of a side window when he saw police. Nelson then fled on foot, and Shrewsbury police said they learned his identity and discovered that he had “multiple” warrants out for his arrest. 

Additional officers arrived and began searching the area, and police requested K-9 units. 

Police said an officer shortly spotted Nelson near the intersection of Route 140 and Melody Lane. When officers ordered him to stop, Nelson fled through several yards and over a fence, according to police.

Police apprehended Nelson near the intersection of Route 140 and Turning Leaf Circle, and he was taken into custody “after a brief struggle,” officers said.
