Officers activated their emergency equipment and this male failed to stop, dropping the bicycle and immediately fleeing on foot. During the foot pursuit the suspect male sprayed a 40 year old male police officer in the face with a can of bear spray. The officer was treated at hospital and did not suffer any injury.
The suspect male was subsequently located by Division 13 Uniform Members in front of a residence in the 400 block of Boyd Avenue where he was arrested without incident.
