Tampa, FL-- Police hunted down and arrested 57-year-old Glen Mayfield as he fled the crime scene. Tampa cops used two pieces of surveillance video from RNC cameras to do it.
Hours later, cops arrested him in Gaslight Park. It was short walk across the street to Tampa Police headquarters for questioning.
"It's certainly ironic that he was so close to the police department, but for us, the location is irrelevant. We're just happy he's no longer a threat to our citizens and he is in custody," said Tampa Spokeswoman Laura McElroy.
Mayfield's bad choices began in the Ft. Brooke parking garage when he attacked a woman late this morning on floor number 9.
"He punched her, he pushed her to the ground, he fondled her, and he threatened that he was armed with a weapon," McElroy explained.
The victim was parked on the eighth floor, and was walking to the ninth floor elevator. She just got there, and he was waiting.
The victim was heading for the elevator, so we took our camera inside one and broke the news of the arrest to everyone inside.
"He's been caught," we told those in the elevator.
"Oh, is he?" Michelle Cool, a woman on the elevator asked. "Oh, I didnt know that they caught him. Good," she said with relief.
