Ibraheem Yazeed, the man police have identified as a suspect in the disappearance of Alabama college student, Aniah Blanchard, has been captured!
Via ABC News:
Late Thursday night, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the United States Marshals Service to assist in an arrest of the suspect on the Alabama-Florida line, according to Hobbs.
Yazeed was driving along an interstate highway from Alabama into Florida and tried to flee the officers attempting to arrest him. He was ultimately apprehended in the Pensacola area of northeast Florida, just 3 miles from the border with Alabama, Hobbs said.
Earlier Thursday, the Auburn Police Division in Alabama named Yazeed a suspect in Blanchard’s disappearance and obtained a warrant for his arrest for the charge of kidnapping. At the time, Yazeed was out on bond for the charges of kidnapping and attempted murder from another jurisdiction in a separate case. Police said he should be considered “dangerous and potentially armed.”
