Fugitive gives up on East Side

Law enforcement officers from throughout the county were involved in a stand-off Wednesday morning with a fugitive wanted by Pennsylvania State Parole.

A release from the City of Warren Police Department said that officers were dispatched to 7 Franklin St. on a report of a fugitive.

According to the release, “Officers arrived and the suspect fled from a downstairs apartment into the attic of the residence. Based on information received at the scene, officers requested assistance from other agencies.”

In addition to the city, Warren-based state police, Conewango Township Police, Warren County Sheriff’s office, the Warren County Adult Probation Department and Pennsylvania State Parole assisted.

“The city police department blocked roads around the residence and set up a perimeter until the suspect, David R. Nulph, Erie, gave up and exited from the residence, ending the standoff peacefully,” the release stated. He was taken to the Warren County Jail.

City of Warren Police Capt. James Jordan said the perimeter was precautionary. Franklin Street was blocked at Pennsylvania Avenue, Jackson Avenue and Madison Avenue during the incident.

Online court records show that Nulph was sentenced in 2011 to 8 to 16 months in a state correctional institution on a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest or other law enforcement.
