Police were looking for a man wanted by police in Aurora, 28-year-old Robert Jackson.

Jackson turned himself in Monday afternoon. 

During the search for Jackson, police made contact with a man, wearing an ankle bracelet, near 16th Street and Cleveland Place.
The man ran from police and into a building. Police implemented a partial evacuation of 110 16th St., which is on the corner of 16th Street and Cleveland Place as they searched for the man.
He was found hiding in the ceiling of the building and taken into custody. Police confirm it was not Jackson. 

The man arrested was Joseph Smith, 21. It is unclear why Smith ran from police. He is facing multiple charges. 

Aurora Police first were called to the 1400 block of Kenton. When they arrived on the scene, they realized a domestic violence incident had taken place. The woman did sustain a minor injury. The man allegedly responsible -Jackson - was no longer on the scene.

He has two felony warrants - one for escape and one for robbery - out for his arrest in Centennial. 

Jackson has an extensive criminal history record including robbery and assault convictions.

Police say Jackson faces assault and battery charges for Monday's alleged domestic violence incident.

The scene in downtown Denver was cleared and the evacuation was lifted.
