Man accused of seriously injuring child found hiding in an attic
College Station police have detained a man wanted for seriously injuring a child early Sunday morning at a local motel.
The search for Jamarious Davis prompted a nearly 2-hour-long shelter-in-place for Bryan residents living north of the Northgate district.
Davis was taken into custody just before 4:00 p.m. after police found him hiding inside an attic of a home in the 4100 block of Nagle.
Police said he was unharmed when he was taken into custody.
The 29-year-old is accused of seriously injuring a 12-year-old early Sunday at the Motel 6 on Texas Avenue near Southwest Parkway.
Sources tell our sister station KBTX just after midnight police and paramedics responded to reports of a child who was bleeding from the neck and head area at the motel.
The victim was rushed to a College Station hospital and then taken to a Houston hospital by air ambulance in serious condition.
Police have declined to say exactly how the child was injured.
On Sunday afternoon police attempted to take Davis into custody at an apartment building in the 4000 block of College Main in Bryan. During their attempt, he managed to flee officers after jumping from a second-story window.
Police ordered residents in a half-mile radius of that area to stay inside and lock doors and windows as they searched for Davis.
Videos that have surfaced on social media show a SWAT team yelling in the direction of an apartment complex on College Main and ordering the suspect to surrender.
Bryan police, College Station police, fire, and EMS are assisted with the situation.
Davis is being taken to a hospital to be checked out for his injuries from the window jump.
At this time, he is under arrest on a previous and unrelated family violence warrant. Additional charges are expected.
No officers were injured during the incident.
