A juvenile female was initially placed in adult detention before being processed and released after running from the police  Sept. 26. 

The girl, and two other subjects, sprinted from Chickasha Police Officer Michael Harper-Head down an alley after they saw his police car during a routine patrol. 

"| drove into the alleyway and the three subjects began running eastbound," said Harper-Head in a report. "At that time l had not attempted to stop them or signaled them to stop. I watched the subjects run to a truck in a back yard where they all kneeled down in an attempt to hide. Due to their behavior, I decided at that time to contact them."

Harper-Head said he located the juvenile female with Shiheam Bedford and another male suspect. 

"Bedford told me he ran because he thought he had warrants," Harper-Head wrote. "He refused to provide information on who else was with him. Bedford was transported to the Jail and booked without incident."

The juvenile claimed to be an adult, which led to her detainment and initial placement in an adult detention center. 

She was released from the jail on a promise to appear for the charges of false personation and obstructing an officer. Bedford was charged with obstructing an officer.
