For Immediate Release

Deputy U.S. Marshal Nathan Lupica
Southern District of Ohio
|Local Man Arrested a Second Time by US Marshals SOFAST|
DAYTON, OHIO – The Southern Ohio
Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) and Acting United States Marshal
Patrick Sedoti announced today that Shawn BROOKINS has been arrested. SOFAST
arrested BROOKINS yesterday afternoon on Spring Valley Road in Miamisburg,
Ohio. This was the second time BROOKINS had a run in with SOFAST.
In early August of 2013, the Wheeling Police Department in West Virginia responded to a domestic dispute. BROOKINS allegedly punched his girlfriend while she was holding a baby and then hit her cousin with a pool stick after he tried to intervene. When the police arrived, the two victims ran to officers as BROOKINS fled out the back door. Officers and police K-9s pursued but eventually lost his trail. Both victims said that BROOKINS owned a gun. On August 2, 2013 a warrant was issued for Shawn BROOKINS for malicious wounding. BROOKINS then fled back to Dayton to escape the charges.
On September 27, 2013, the Dayton SOFAST team determined
that BROOKINS was staying at an address on Spring Valley Road in Miamisburg.
The SOFAST team found BROOKINS hiding inside an apartment and arrested him
without incident. BROOKINS is currently detained in the Montgomery County
Jail awaiting extradition to West Virginia.
