Arkansas police have apprehended a man wanted for assaulting a police officer in Missouri.
Yesterday, Hot Springs police arrested 25 year old Robert Hardy, of Nixa, after a week long hunt.
Hardy escaped police custody while being treated at a Nixa hospital shortly after he allegedly assaulted a Missouri police officer in April.
He was wanted on 4 felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon when police found him at a home early Friday.
The suspect was first spotted Monday by an Arkansas officer who recognized his face from a fugitive photograph.
Police say Hardy fled on foot.
Searchers later found a camp in the woods believed to be his.
