CONWAY, Ark. – Police in Conway say the subject of a Friday morning manhunt that led them to warn residents to stay inside their homes is now in custody.
Around 1:15 p.m. officials with the Conway Police Department said Josh Johnson was in police custody after leading officers on a three hour manhunt.
Department officials said officers were responding to a call about a domestic situation in the Quail Creek Subdivision on Old Highway 25 Friday just after 9:32 a.m. when Johnson fled the scene.
After arriving on the scene, officers said they found three victims with stab wounds. Police officials said all victims were taken to a local hospital and are believed to be stable.
Police searched the area surrounding the neighborhood, even deploying the department’s K-9 unit to assist with the search.
Authorities had warned residents to stay inside their homes during the search and not approach Johnson, as police believed he was armed with a knife.
There is no word at this time as to what charges, if any, Johnson could be facing in connection to this incident.
