Concord police detained a man this afternoon who allegedly was spotted with a gun and escaped a search last week. Today’s arrest came at the conclusion of another search for the suspect that locked down several schools as police used dogs to locate the man. The suspect, identified as Sean Rosevear, 29, was reported last Monday to be armed with a handgun in the 4000 block of Forestview Drive.
When officers attempted to detain him, he ran and evaded a ground and air search of the area. Today police attempted to detain him as he drove away from a residence on Forestview Drive. He left his car and ran away into a neighborhood. Police set up a search perimeter and searched the area with the assistance of a California Highway Patrol helicopter. Several nearby public schools were locked down during the search.
Eventually, a police dog located Rosevear underneath a house in the 4000 block of Forestview Drive. He was hiding in a crawlspace and refused to surrender, eventually coming out after a scuffle with the police dog. Two officers and the dog received minor injuries. Rosevear was transported to a hospital and will be transferred to county jail in Martinez. He will be booked on suspicion of a parole violation, resisting arrest causing injury, injuring a police dog, possession of a controlled substance and possession of a stolen vehicle.
