Utica Police Department

Utica, NY (WIBX) - A took a couple of weeks, but police finally got their man. The suspect, 22-year-old Henry Lumpkin, of 3 Springate Street in Utica, became a fugitive, when he fled from state police, after crashing his car during a high speed chase on Route 12 North. The incident occurred on Thursday, April 26, at 8:13 pm.

His two passengers were injured during the roll-over crash. With help from Utica Police and the Oneida County Sheriff K-9 Patrol, officials caught up with Lumpkin yesterday and took him into custody. Officials acting on a tip say they located Lumpkin hiding in a basement of a building in Utica.

He’s facing the following charges:

  • 2 counts of 3rd Degree Assault
  • 1 count of 2nd Degree Reckless Endangerment
  • 1 count of 3rd Degree Unlawful Fleeing a Police Officer
  • Multiple vehicle and traffic violations
  • Parole violation
  • Torturing and injuring animals, a misdemeanor

UPD charged Lumpkin for a previous domestic abuse incident that occurred on April 20, 2012,  involving a Pitt-bull puppy. In that case, Lumpkin is alleged to have wrested with another person to gain control of the dog. A concerned citizen allegedly told officials of witnessing the two “play tug of war” with the puppy.
