UPDATE: Police searched the Duluth Public Library on Saturday with rifles drawn.
Duluth Police Department officials report officers were looking for a suspect involved in a series of car prowls.
Police would arrest 20–year–old Rakim Asad of Chicago. He's now in jail awaiting fourth degree assault charges.
Authorities say they first saw him in a hotel room at the Radisson where an empty gun holster and marijuana was found.
After a short foot chase, police took him into custody and cited a second man, 21–year–old Akim Asad, with fleeing a police officer.
DULUTH-More than ten squad cars and just as many police officers surrounded the Duluth Public Library mid-day on Saturday as part of a search for a suspect.
The Duluth Police Department has not yet released any additional information on what they responded to.
David Ouse, Supervisor of Public Services at the Duluth Public Library, said an officer asked him to open areas of the building for them to check.
Officers carried large rifles in and outside of the building but did not ask for the library to be evacuated during the noontime search.
Police left the scene after they could not locate the suspect, Ouse said.
Authorities also surrounded areas near the Incline Station Bowling Center where officers discussed the building while gesturing at the roof - a possible stopping point for their suspect.
The main area of investigation appeared to be near Duluth's Radisson Hotel where multiple squad cars parked underneath the building's awning.
Updates to this story will be added as soon as they become available.
