SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man wanted for previously resisting arrest led an officer on a short foot chase in Memorial Saturday before he was taken into custody, police said.
A patrol officer was driving in the area of South 30th Street and Ocean View Boulevard shortly before 4 p.m. when he saw a walking man who he recognized as a suspect named in an arrest warrant, said San Diego police Sgt. Ray Battrick.
The warrant cited a resisting-arrest incident, police said without providing details about it.
The officer ordered the man to stop, but he took off running Battrick said. The officer chased the man and found him some 10 minutes later hiding about three blocks away in a building that was closed for the weekend, he said.
Police did not immediately release the man's name.
