An arrest warrant for homicide was issued for him on the same day.On July 7, Haqq was arrested by the Fresno Police Department (FPD). However, during post-custody questioning, he removed his restraints and, following a struggle, escaped custody through a window in the interview room.

The FPD Homicide Division requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force (PSWRFTF) on July 10 to locate and arrest Haqq. On July 13, task force members along with the FPD developed information that that led them to the 7200 block of French Rd., Sacramento, California, where they conducted surveillance on a vehicle registered to Haqq’s wife, Elvisha Davis. At approximately 5:15 a.m., Haqq and Davis were observed as they entered the vehicle. All units subsequently converged on the vehicle and took both subjects into custody.
