Olivette, MO (KSDK) - Charges have been filed against a man accused of fleeing from police and hiding in an unsuspecting homeowner's basement.
Edgar Everett Coleman, 48, has been charged with first-degree burglary and resisting arrest in Olivette, and first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer, armed criminal action, and resisting arrest in Overland.
Police say Coleman fled from Overland officers Saturday night in a blue Dodge van. On Sunday a homeowner in the 300 block of Dielman told officers he noticed a broken basement window and saw the suspect running from his home when he went to investigate.
Coleman is held on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
