One of America's Most Wanted fugitives was arrested in Knoxville this weekend.

According to Knoxville Police, officers responded to a fight at the Rocky Top Market on Cumberland Avenue around 3:15 am Sunday morning.  Three women told officers they had been assaulted by two men at the market.  The men were no longer at the market.

A witness described the two suspects and their vehicle, and officers spotted them a few minutes later.  The car was pulled over and the two suspects, who said they were Jerome Locke and Lamar Green, were taken back to the market, where the victims identified them.  The two were arrested for assault and disorderly conduct.

The men were taken to the Knox County Detention Facility, where they were booked, and jail officials realized that the man claiming to be Lamar Green was actually Tyshon Leteek Jones, who was wanted for a 2010 murder in Montgomery County Maryland.

Jones, 21, had been featured three times on the television show, Americas Most Wanted.  He was a known gang member, and one of four suspects in the shooting death of Julian Kelly. 

Jones is currently being held at the Knox County Detention Facility, charged with two counts of assault, one count of disorderly conduct, and under a hold for the United States Marshal's Service related to the Maryland murder charge.

Jerome Locke, 23, of Knoxville, was charged with one count of assault and one count of disorderly conduct. He has been subsequently released on a $1,500 bond.
