WESTLAKE, OH (WOIO) -

A fugitive on the run from the law in Missouri has been arrested in Westlake.

Brian Adkison is an August 10 escapee from the Caldwell County Detention Center in Kingston, MO where he faces kidnapping, domestic violence, and violating a temporary protection order charges. He is also wanted in Boone County, MO for rape and burglary charges.

Shortly after 1 p.m. Wednesday, the suspect was spotted riding a bike on Detroit Road near Cahoon Road by an alert citizen.  

Adkison ducked into woods, and officers from Avon, Bay Village, Fairview Park, North Olmsted and Rocky River set up a perimeter in the area bounded by I-90, the railroad tracks, Cahoon Road and Ranney Parkway. 

At 1:25 p.m., Adkison was seen inside the Huntington Woods nursing home on Westchester Parkway by staff. He was arrested there by a Westlake PD patrolman after a brief struggle.

No local charges have been filed at this time; they are being considered.
