Temple man goes on wild rampage, arrested by officers


A 37-year-old man goes on a wild rampage around Temple until he is finally arrested by police Wednesday morning. Police were notified of two burglaries in the area, one in the 1100 block of S. 47th St. and the other in the 900 block of  S. 45th St.

Police say during the burglary of a habitation in the 1100 block of S. 47th, Martin Anthony Hernandez grabbed the victim and attempted to force him into his vehicle. Hernandez then drove him to an unknown location, where the victim resisted and Hernandez fled the scene.

Officers were later notified of criminal mischief at the Westside Drug Store in the 1500 block of S. 31st St. The suspect's description at that location was similar to the description provided in the two burglary reports.

Hernandez was later found at Pecan Plaza in the 1400 block of S. 31st. He then got into an occupied vehicle, and told the victim to drive and run red lights. Hernandez did not injure the victim, but after rummaging through the vehicle and pulling on the steering wheel, he jumped out and ran south on 31st St.

Hernandez then ran to the Stratford House Inn in the 1900 block of S. 31st. He entered the business, jumped over the counter, scared citizens and ran out the front door towards Scott & White Hospital.

As Hernandez ran towards Scott & White Hospital, he jumped into the bed of a slow moving pickup truck. He eventually jumped out of the truck and ran onto the Scott & White property.

Hernandez ran towards the south tower entrance doors of Scott & White Hospital, where he was eventually detained by three security officers.

Hernandez has been charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit other felony. He is now in Bell County Jail.
