The armed suspect Roseville police were searching for Friday has turned himself in.

Twenty-year-old Khari Adams, of St. Paul turned himself in at 11:30 p.m. Friday at the St. Paul Police Department nearly 12 hours after police received reports that he assaulted a woman.

Officers were called to the 2900 block of Centre Pointe Drive for an armed man who assaulted a woman around 11:30 a.m.

Twenty-year-old Khari Adams, of St. Paul, is accused of physically assaulting his 19-year old girlfriend and displaying a firearm to others at the scene. The victim and witnesses report Adams ran from the scene through the Residence Inn Hotel.

As officers continued to search for Adams, employees from a nearby business, Symantec Software, reported Adams ran into their building.

Police say another Symantec employee said the suspect borrowed his phone and was seen walking along a pathway towards the south. With conflicting reports on the suspect’s whereabouts, officers from the Roseville Police Department and management from Symantec Software ordered all employees and guests to vacate the building or shelter in place.

About 10 Symantec employees sheltered in place and were escorted from the building to safety by SWAT officers. After an exhaustive three hour search, police found no evidence the suspect had entered the building.

Adams is wanted for felony terroristic threats, domestic assault as well as misdemeanor warrants.

Charges are pending.
