Tree service crew helps Moorhead police track down domestic assault suspect

(Fargo, ND) -- Crews from a local tree service working in Moorhead helped police track down a suspect wanted in connection with a domestic assault.  

Police tell us they responded to the call Monday.

While checking around the area where the alleged crime occurred, they asked crews from Carr's Tree Service if they had seen the man matching the description the officers provided. The crew had not. But about 15 minutes later, the crew spotted the suspect and followed him on foot as he ran from the area. Based on the information the crew provided, police were able to "intercept" the suspect and take him into custody.

Police officials say without the vigilance and initiative of the crew from Carr’s Tree Service, officers would not have been able to bring such a swift end to this incident. The police department did not provide details on the time or location of the alleged domestic assault.
