Town of Chenango, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A fugitive on the run from Chemung County is caught Tuesday evening in the town of Chenango.

The Chemung County Sheriff's Office has been on the lookout for Robert Rouille, 33, since the morning of Aug. 15. That's when deputies said he and another man threatened and assaulted a man and woman in their town of Southport home.

Rouille was considered armed and dangerous, according to the sheriff's office.

He was discovered after New York State Police found he was in contact with someone at the Riverview Court trailer park in the town of Chenango.

Rouille was taken into custody just after 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. New York State Police said he initially refused to come out of the trailer, and that when he did, he was unarmed.

Rouille faces charges of robbery in the first and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third.

He is being sent to Chemung County for further processing.

The U.S. Marshal Task Force and Broome County Sheriff's Office assisted at the scene.
