    NEW HAVEN POLICE ENGAGE IN FOOT PURSUIT OF SUSPECT, MAKE ARREST AND SEIZE FIREARM

    (1/12/2010) On Monday at approximately 7:45 p.m., New Haven Police apprehended 17-year-old Davon Willoughby of New Haven after the individual abandoned a weapon on Norton Street and fled from an officer.

    While on routine patrol in the area of Norton Street and Derby Avenue, officers spotted Willoughby walking, favoring the right side of his body. Willoughby then pulled an object from his right torso and slipped it into the sleeve of his jacket, before dropping it behind a hedged fence. Spotting the suspicious activity, the officers exited their patrol car and as one officer interviewed Willoughby, a second officer discovered a firearm, later identified as a Taurus .38 Special, in the area where Willoughby had dropped the previously unknown object. The man fled the scene before being apprehended, leading an officer on a foot pursuit.

    Willoughby was apprehended at 304-306 Winthrop Avenue and charged with possession of a firearm, possession of a pistol without a permit, altering identification marks and interfering with an officer.
