    Suffolk VA LEO beat unconscious after traffic stop

    Update: Suffolk police officer in critical condition after assault, suspect arrested | WTKR.com

    Police say Joe Louis Staton, of Portsmouth, was caught around 3:45 p.m. behind a home on Nansemond Pkwy in Suffolk.

    According to police spokesperson Debbie George, it all started in the 1000 block of Nansemond Pkwy when officer James Winslow pulled over an SUV, believed to be stolen from Norfolk. The driver ran off towards a wooded area.

    Officer Winslow chased him on foot into the woods, where police say Staton then hit Winslow several times with a blunt object, rendering Winslow unconscious. He suffered serious injuries to his head, face, arm and shoulder.

    Winslow was flown to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. According to George, Winslow is out of surgery and listed in critical condition.

    Police searched for Staton for about seven hours before finding him behind a home on Nansemond Pkwy. The charges against him are pending. According to police, there was also a warrant out for his arrest from Norfolk for probation violation.
    Now the rest of the story. My friend and coworker's mother lives in the house where the suspect was caught. The traffic stop happened in front of her house. The suspect was caught behind her house FIVE HOURS LATER. So where was the suspect for five hours, with every LEO available from several cities on scene and the CP out front?

    He was hiding on her property. Her husband found him hiding in a well pumphouse, he then was thought to have gone under their house due to finding a loose crawlspace cover. SWAT cleared the house. He was then found by the husband in the bathroom, cleaning up from being under the house in the mud! He was known to be in possession of the LEO's weapon, and ordered the husband to STOP. Husband ran out to the CP and summoned them again. Finally he was captured.

    Lessons here:

    Even armed LEOs can be beat unconscious.
    Carry at home.
    The proximity of the police does NOT ensure your safety.

    A good "wake up call" story. Valuable lessons.
