Jamestown Man Allegedly Flees From Police

ELLICOTT – A Jamestown man allegedly fled from officers after they pulled him over on Fairmount Avenue Tuesday afternoon, according to the Ellicott Police Department.

Armando Rosario, 36, also allegedly falsified his name and date of birth before fleeing. Rosario was tracked and located by New York State Police’s K-9 unit who, along with Lakewood-Busti Police, assisted.

Rosario allegedly attempted to flee from the K-9, but was unsuccessful. He was arrested and taken to UPMC for his injuries.
