Man Arrested After Vehicle Pursuit

Officers safely apprehended an armed man at Walmart after a vehicle chase earlier this morning.

Around 4:28 a.m., a driver committing multiple traffic offenses led Riley County Police Department officers on a pursuit. The vehicle was later located, but the driver, later identified Gerry Wayne Phillips II, was not on the scene. 

Around 9:10 a.m., Phillips II was located in the 100 block of East Bluemont Street in Manhattan at Walmart. Phillips II was armed with a handgun and refused to comply with officer demands causing a struggle. 

Ultimately officers were able to safely apprehend Phillips II and arrest him on 2 counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and 1 count of felony interfering with law enforcement. 

Phillips II was transported to the Pottawatomie County Jail.  If any bystanders witnessed this incident and have video, please contact the Riley County Police Department at (785) 537-2112.
