Two people were arrested by the Boyle County Sheriff’s Department last week after attempting to flee on foot.

At 9:25 p.m. Thursday, deputies stopped a 1997 Honda Accord in the downtown area of Danville. The driver would not stop and a pursuit began.

At 9:34 p.m., based on the blotter received from the Danville 911 Center, the vehicle was found on Kings Mill Road. Two males fled on foot and one female was held.

Boyle County Sheriff Derek Robbins said she was an “unwilling participant.”

According to the blotter, deputies were called to Chenault Bridge Road at 10:27 a.m. relating to a suspicious male, as a possible suspect who fled the night before. The Boyle County Sheriff’s Department reported Nicholas Wilburn, 38, of Junction City was captured about 12 hours after he fled from deputies.
