Local News

A juvenile faces charges after a police chase ended late Friday at the intersection of Iowa and Locust street, Davenport.

The juvenile, whose name will not be released, faces charges of stealing a car and interference with official acts.

The car, a 2015 Buick Verano, was reported stolen from a residence Friday morning, police said.

Officers were at the intersection of Iowa and Locust streets, Davenport, early Saturday morning, with one person in custody after a vehicle chase involving a stolen vehicle. Police originally responded to a call about people in two vehicles waving guns at each other, but no weapons were recovered, police said.

The incident, which began shortly before 10:30 p.m., involved several juveniles.

One officer used a megaphone directed at a house nearby while other officers put up crime-scene tape to secure the area. Two people came out of the house. Although at least three people were in custody at one time, only one was arrested.

Police went into the house about 12:30 a.m. Saturday when police executed a search warrant and did not find anyone inside.

Crowds gathered on all four sides of the area to watch and take cell-phone photos and video.
