Police in Auburn track down suspect after reported assault

Police followed footprints — and drops of blood — in the snow Thursday night in search of a suspect after receiving a report of a fight.

Police were called to the area of Owasco Street near Walnut Street just before 10:30 p.m., where a bloodied victim was reported to have walked into the Owasco Mini Mart.

Officers searched the neighborhood for the alleged assailant, including both sides of the Miller Street dam.

Other officers gathered at a residence on South Fulton Street, where it appeared the altercation had originated.

One person was later reported to have been taken into custody, and at least one person was transported to Auburn Memorial Hospital to be treated for injuries.
