Video of a criminal’s epic failure to evade police has been making the rounds on social media. A man suspected of kidnapping, rape, and assault attempted to jump out of a hotel window after being cornered by the police, then begged them not to tase him.
Officers were called to a Quality Inn in Blue Ash, Ohio to perform a wellness check after receiving a call from the front desk.
The front desk attendant had informed police that she had seen a man and woman enter the hotel, and the female had looked unwell, appearing nervous and visibly shaking. The attendant was able to discreetly ask the woman if she needed help, and she responded with body language indicating that something was wrong.
“I was short enough he couldn’t see me and I mouthed, ‘Do you need help,’ and she nodded and blinked her eyes. When they were walking away from the desk he was a little bit in front of her and she turned and shook her head yes. I just want to make sure she’s ok,” the attendant said in the 9-1-1 audio recording.
After arriving at the hotel, police were able to separate the man and woman. They began to question the man — later identified as 19 year old Onjre Damon George — about why they were there, when all of a sudden he attempted to escape, running towards the window of the sixth-floor hotel room.
The reinforced glass prevented his escape, causing him to bounce off of the window. The officer immediately pulls out his taser.
Despite that setback, George is determined to get out the window, stating: “Look, I’m about to jump, I’m about to jump, don’t tase me!”
The audio on the video then cuts out as the officer closes in with his taser drawn, while the suspect gets down on his knees with his hands behind his back. From the video, it appears that he was then taken into custody without further incident.
Court documents show that George had hit the woman several times, leaving bruises on her head and body. He also prevented her from calling 911 on her cell phone, and unplugged the hotel phone.
