An Antioch man was arrested after he allegedly assaulted a woman in downtown Antioch and then fled from police Tuesday morning, police said. Just before noon, police responded to the downtown area where there had been a report of a man attacking a woman, police said. The man, later identified as 32-year-old Rakeem Rucks, fled when police arrived.
The woman stayed in the area but was uncooperative with police. Officers chased Rucks to a home in the 400 block of F Street where he allegedly forced his way into the residence, police said. Police surrounded the home and the woman who had been attacked arrived at the home and interfered with the police.
She was then arrested. She was only identified as an Antioch resident. After Rucks refused to respond to officers, they entered the home where they found a loaded, stolen firearm. Rucks was not inside, and police determined he had run out the back before they surrounded the home. He was found several hours later when he called for medical assistance for injuries from evading police. He was taken into custody after he was treated at a local hospital. He was booked at the Martinez Detention Facility on domestic violence, resisting arrest and possession of a stolen gun charges, police said.
