Orville Foster is in custody following a multi-agency arrest detail
Foster, who has a significantly violent criminal history including 1st degree criminal sexual conduct, aggravated robbery, kidnapping, felony assault, felony controlled substance crimes, and felony fleeing police in a motor vehicle was taken into custody without incident near the light rail platform at Hennepin Avenue and 5th Avenue, downtown Minneapolis.
Foster had an active warrant for failing to appear before District Court on charges of felony predatory offender failure to register when TCAT received information that the fugitive was wandering downtown in and out of bars and nightclubs.
TCAT coordinated with Transit Police and Minneapolis Police, who located Foster at the Brass Rail and took him into custody after his 45 day run.
Foster was transported to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office adult detention center, where he is being held pending an appearance before District Court. All defendants are presumed innocent, until proven guilty in a court of law.
