MANATEE COUNTY - Authorities are searching for a man suspect they say fled on foot near the intersection of 15th Street East and Tallevast Road Wednesday afternoon.

The suspect is 22-year-old Teddy Davis.  He is wanted on Aggravated Battery and Armed Robbery charges from an incident that took place on April 25th in which a woman was beaten and robbed at gunpoint.

According to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, detectives were serving a search warrant Wednesday at Davis' Hidden Acres home when he fled the area in his vehicle.

Detectives followed him and pulled him over along 15th Street East just south of Whitfield Avenue.  As the detectives exited their vehicles, Davis drove off again.

He then crashed into two trucks a short distance away near the intersection with Tallevast Road and then fled on foot.

The occupants in the trucks were not injured.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Teddy Davis should call the sheriff's office at 941-747-3011, ext. 2547 or Crime Stoppers at 866-634-TIPS.
