Man leads police on foot chase through NW Lawton neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._ A man took off running from police Saturday night when authorities show up at his home after neighbors apparently heard fighting inside.

Franklin Burns led police on a foot chase through a northwest neighborhood. He jumped over at least five fences into neighboring yards before police were able to catch up with him. Police say Burns tried to break free but failed.

The incident started at 2804 NW Ozmun Avenue. A woman there told police burns hit her with a wooden stick, bit her left ear and choked her.

Franklin was arrested for resisting police, assaulting a police officer and domestic abuse by strangulation.
