SHERIDAN, Colo. -- An Amber Alert for a 17-year-old girl missing out of Sheridan has been deactivated. The Sheridan Police Department says Samantha Herrera has been located. Her estranged boyfriend, 18-year-old Rodney Brown, is in custody.
Around 11:35 p.m. Tuesday, SPD asked the public to look out for a white Honda Accord that the two may have been traveling in.
Police said officers responded to a Pet Smart parking lot at 3720 River Point Parkway, in the area of West Hampden Avenue and Santa Fe Drive, at 5:10 p.m. Tuesday on a report of two females screaming for someone to call 911.
Police said Brown physically prevented Herrera from getting out of the vehicle and drove away. There is a court-ordered protection order prohibiting Brown from contacting Herrera, police said.
A witness said Herrera was trying to get out of Brown's car after a physical struggle.
Authorities later said Herrera and Brown were believed to be in the north metro Denver area.
Around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday, SPD said Brown was arrested in Northglenn about 5 p.m.
Police have not said whether Herrera was injured.
