Alexandria man arrested after allegedly eluding police outside William Ramsay Elementary School

A 25-year-old Alexandria man is being held without bond in the city jail after allegedly eluding police outside William Ramsay Elementary School in the West End.

The suspect allegedly got into a phone argument with the mother of his child, and then waited for her outside the school building. The mother called police, and two responding police officers found the suspect waiting outside as the school day was ending and parents were picking up kids.

The suspect was asked to continue the conversation away from school grounds, and when he refused police told him he was being arrested. He then allegedly ran away from police.

An emergency protective order was later issued against the suspect, who was arrested 11 days later and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
