On May 25, the Philadelphia Police Department announced the arrest of Tyrell Winchester, of the 2000 block of South 20th Street, having sought the 28-year-old for a Chester County-based incident. Six days before his detainment, Winchester supposedly tried to run over a police officer who had attempted to stop him once noticing that he might have been driving a stolen silver 2000 Mercury sedan.
Following the reported instance of aggression, the law enforcement agent followed the local figure down West Chester Pike, with Winchester allegedly stopping his vehicle on the side of the road and fleeing on foot through a nearly field. Authorities retrieved a dropped backpack and found a Social Security card inside, using that information to involve the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. That entity and the Philadelphia Police Department combined to arrest Winchester on the aforementioned date at 19th and Market streets. He ended up remanded to Chester County Prison in lieu of $300,000 bail, with authorities charging him with attempted murder in the first degree, aggravated and simple assault, and fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer.
