TTPD arrests man attempting to break into backyard storage shed


Texarknaa, Texas Police arrested Donte Henderson, 22, for several charges after a homeowner in the 1700 block of W. 17th Street caught him trying to break into her backyard storage shed about 10:45 Thursday night. When her husband and a family friend arrived, they tried to keep him from leaving and wound up struggling on the ground with him. Henderson continued to fight and kick while trying to get away – even biting one of the men twice on the arm.

Just as Officer Patrick Penny got there, Henderson managed to break free and took off running. Penny was able to catch up with him near Summerhill Road and take him into custody.

Henderson was transported to the Bi-State Jail, where he is being held for Criminal Trespass, Evading Arrest with a prior conviction, and Assault Causing Bodily Injury. His bond has not yet been set on any of his charges.
