PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — The U.S. Marshals and Portsmouth police say a Portsmouth fugitive wanted on charges of robbery, and assault and battery turned himself in to the Portsmouth Police Department on Thursday.

Davonte Lamonte Brown has strong ties to Portsmouth, according to the U.S. Marshals. Warrants for Brown’s arrest were issued in September.

Brown, 25, goes by “Tae” and is known to frequent the 6000 block of Brookwood Drive of Suffolk.
