UPDATE: Tyler Police have 33 yr. old William Easley of Flint in custody. They tell KETK, he was arrested at his house in Flint without incident.
On Monday, January 16, 2012 around 4:22 p.m. Tyler Police responded to Fresh (Brookshire’s) located at 6991 Old Jacksonville Highway in reference to an attempted robbery that occurred in the parking lot.
Police contacted a 39 year-old female victim who told police that she was exiting her vehicle when she observed a white male approaching her door. The victim told police that the suspect told her that he had a gun and was forcing her back into her vehicle.
The victim immediately started to scream for help and was pushing the suspect in order to get out so her screams could be heard. Upon hearing the screams, two customers in the parking lot came running to her aid. The suspect ran from the victim’s vehicle and jumped into a blue, Grand AM vehicle and sped from the scene.
Officers located a suspect vehicle along with a suspect on S. Broadway who was identified and released pending further investigation. Tyler Detectives were able to develop information that allowed them to secure an arrest warrant for kidnapping on the suspect.
The suspect is identified as William Easley, W/M, 02/11/1978, of Flint. Investigators have not been able to locate Easley at this time. Easley was last seen driving a 2000, Blue Pontiac Grand AM 4-door, Texas license plate 278-KVF.
Anyone with information about William Easley is urged to contact the Tyler Police Department, at 903-531-1000, or Crimestoppers, at 903-597-CUFF (903-597-2833). Crimestoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and charges filed against the suspects in this case, or any, felony case.
