Tulsa police arrested a suspect after he led them on a chase and held a woman hostage in a midtown Tulsa home.
Police tell FOX23 the chase started as a traffic stop near 24th and Gary just before 11 am on Thursday. The suspect, 36-year old Loyde Eslinger, drove off and crashed his car and took off running in the neighborhood.
Police say neighbors outside pointed police to where he was running and the man broke into a woman’s home and held her down on the ground inside. Police broke in and ordered the suspect to stop, threatening to shoot him.
Police say the suspect then ran through the backdoor of the house and police caught him. Police say the suspect began acting as if he was on drugs, but they think that was an act.
Police say Eslinger has several federal warrants.
