Police chase down sex offender

May 17, 2011

A registered sex offender was captured early Tuesday morning after a police chase on the southeast side of Indianapolis. Police expected to arrest Shawn Doan, 23, outside a Beech Grove business about 11:30 p.m. Monday because of several felony sex-offender registry violations. When he saw police, he fled the scene in his Honda Accord, leading them through neighborhoods in the Fountain Square area. Doan eventually ran over the stop sticks, lost control and crashed into bushes at a bank branch near Raymond and Shelby streets. He tried to hide in a nearby house, but was chased down by a police dog.
