Police were called early Saturday evening to the Superior Mini Mart at St. John and Oakley on a disturbance call. When officers arrived they found the suspect, Trevorwayne Bradbury, behind the counter of the store. When officers attempted to arrest Bradbury he began to struggle, gouging at one of the officer’s eyes. A second officer attempted to detain Bradbury and was also injured in the process. When officers attempted to tase the suspect, he removed the prongs from himself and continued to throw objects from the store’s shelves at the officers, indicating he wasn’t going back to jail. At one point in time, Bradbury ran to the back of the store and barricaded himself in a storage closet. An Operation 100 was called but then called off shortly afterward, as Bradbury surrendered himself to officers on the scene.
Bradbury is charged with one count of First Degree Assault, attempting to cause serious injury and one count of Attempted Assault. Both charges are with Special Victims. One officer sustained severe injuries to his eye and a second officer sustained cuts and bruises attempting to take Bradbury into custody.
