A suspect wanted on an outstanding human smuggling warrant ran from police when they tried to arrest him, prompting a 90-minute search in the Mid-City area late Friday evening before he was taken into custody.
Police were called at 9:26 p.m. to the 4400 block of Altadena Avenue for a suspect with a no-bail warrant, said San Diego Police Department Officer Robert Heims.
The suspect, who was reportedly wanted on a human smuggling warrant, decided to run, according to Heims.
A perimeter was set up in the area, where the man was seen jumping fences and hiding in bushes, Heims said. He was caught just before 11 p.m.
No injuries were reported, Heims said.
