On 1/18/2020, The Dothan Police have arrested Juan Marcus Roberson (28) for the shooting of one victim and kidnapping the second.  Roberson was arrested Saturday night after he fled the shooting in the 100 blk of woods Drive. Roberson grabbed the kidnapping victim, Tanesha McLeod  and pushed her in the car and assaulted her all the way to Montgomery.  Once in Montgomery, Roberson stopped for gas and Miss McLeod was able to gain control over the vehicle and fled to another gas station in Montgomery.

The Montgomery Police Department responded and got into a foot pursuit of Roberson and  he was able to evade capture initially but was later captured by the Montgomery Police with the help of helicopters and police K-9s.

The shooting victim received a single gunshot wound to the chest and made it through surgery and he is listed in stable condition.

The Dothan Police Department would like to thank the Montgomery Police Department, The Troy Police Department, The Dale County Sheriff’s Office Air Unit and the US Marshals for their assistance in bringing this case to closure without further victims.

All persons arrested are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
