A man wanted since Sunday for strong-armed robbery has been taken into
custody in Dothan, AL trying to flee the area.
Shawn Edward Davis, Jr., 27 had been wanted in relation to an incident that happened in the 600 block of Kraft Avenue Sunday. Davis battered his 51-year-old father and stole money from him before fleeing the area on foot.
Detectives with the Panama City Police Department worked multiple leads on Davis’s
whereabouts before an anonymous tip came in saying he was in the Dothan area. Working with the US Marshals Service and the Dothan Police Department, Davis was located and arrested.
Davis is charged with robbery by sudden snatching and will be extradited back to Bay County. The Panama City Police Department would like to thank the Marshals Service and the Dothan PD for their assistance in this case.
