Wanted fugitive threatens to rape, kill police officers and their families

The suspect was arrested on outstanding warrants and then earned multiple felonies upon his booking.

CANTON A southeast Canton man arrested on a warrant was charged with multiple felonies after he “became aggressive with officers and another prisoner” and threatened to kill their families, Stark County Jail records show.

State prison records labeled Bradley I. Stroud, 27, of 1316 Roe Ct. SE, a wanted fugitive.

Stroud was arrested at 1:20 a.m. Thursday at the jail by Canton Police. The jail records do not show how he came to be at the jail, but Canton Police reports show he was arrested at 12:33 a.m. on “an active warrant for a parole violation.”

As he was being booked into the facility on the warrant, Stroud reportedly threatened the officers and a female prisoner being booked into the facility, calling her a racial slur. According to the jail records, Stroud threatened “to rape the arresting officers’ wives and children,” and that he was going to kill the officers and their families upon his release.

He was jailed on the warrant and charged additionally with aggravated menacing, felony ethnic intimidation and four counts of felony intimidation. READ MORE
