Man Arrested After Police Chase In Dormont

Police caught up with the man on Pioneer Avenue.

A man with two outstanding warrants was arrested after leading Dormont police officers on a foot chase through two neighborhoods.

Officers on patrol in the 2900 block of West Liberty Avenue at 4:25 p.m. spotted Robert Felton Jr., who police said had two outstanding warrants for arrest.

According to the police report, Felton fled the area on foot, and officers chased him through traffic and between several homes in the neighborhood near Tennessee Avenue before he was caught in the back yard of a home in the 3100 block of Pioneer Avenue.

!!! Kudos For Dormont Police !!! Everytime you turn around They're catching somebody in the act And that's because they do their job And that is a well-known-fact I've lived there for many years And I've always felt safe with them And it didn't matter the place or street Or who,what,where,or when! They had always captured their man And there was no two ways about it And I mean that with all of my heart And if you want me to,I'll shout it! Thank You Dormont Police For years of excellent service For with you always watching the town "Nobody has to be nervous" Billy Nardozzi Green Tree
