Help in locating Brandon J. Paxson

April 18, 2018 - 11:08 am

A 40-year-old male suspect on Monday resisted, battered, and fled from a Wichita Police Department (WPD) officer during the investigation of a stolen vehicle.

At approximately, 10 p.m. an officer responded to a stolen auto report at Davis Moore, 7525 E. Kellogg. The vehicle was a black 2016 GMC Yukon.  Through the investigation, a WPD officer located the stolen vehicle in the 5800 block of east Pawnee. He observed an unknown suspect pumping gas in the vehicle then hoping into the driver’s seat.  The officer made contact with the suspect who immediately began resisting arrest, refusing to comply and striking the officer in the mouth, causing injury. The suspect then jumped into the passenger seat of a blue Pontiac G6 which fled the scene. 

Another officer located the Pontiac G6 at Pawnee and Oliver.  A traffic pursuit ensued but was discontinued due to excessive speeding in a residential neighborhood.

The WPD is requesting the public’s assistance locating Brandon J. Paxson, who is a person of interest in this case.

Paxson is also wanted for an outstanding warrant in Sedgwick County.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of Paxson, please call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.
