PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A man accused of shooting a woman in Providence earlier this year was captured in Arizona, police confirm.

Maj. David Lapatin said Rashad Glenn was arrested Wednesday in Tucson.

Police in Tucson told 12 News they assisted with taking Glenn into custody, but said any further information would come from the U.S. Marshal Service (USMS).

According to USMS spokesperson Colleen Grayman, U.S. Marshals were also on scene Wednesday afternoon in the area of 1st Avenue and Amphi to make the arrest.

“Glenn was wanted for felony assault, possession of a firearm, and firing in a compact area by the Providence Police Department in Rhode Island,” Grayman said.

Due to the nature of the charges, SWAT team members also responded as a precaution, but Grayman said Glenn “was ultimately taken into custody without incident.”

Glenn is accused of shooting a woman in the stomach in a Hartford Avenue apartment on April 26. At the time, the victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

According to a police report obtained by Target 12, when officers they got to the scene, they found blood throughout the building’s common area hallway and in the kitchen of an apartment, along with a spent shell casing near the apartment door.

Police said they spoke to a witness who said the victim was banging on the door in an attempt to get in, but they were asleep at the time and didn’t realize what was happening.

According to the witness, Glenn was an upstairs neighbor. The witness told police Glenn came downstairs to confront the victim about making noise and waking up children upstairs.

“At this point, a struggle ensued between Glenn and the victim. While the victim was attempting to defend herself, she hit Glenn in the head with an unknown object,” the police report stated.

Police said the witness opened the door to see the fight between the suspect and victim, which led to Glenn allegedly shooting the victim in the stomach.

“At this time, the victim fell to the ground and Glenn fled the scene running back upstairs to his apartment then out the front door on foot,” the report said.

It’s not clear when Glenn will be returned to Rhode Island to face charges.
