Arriving officers located the man as he fled, but he evaded police in the 900 block of South Lone Hill. Police set up a perimeter to search for the hiding suspect.
The suspect was eventually located after about an hour-long search and was taken into custody in the service bay area of the Glendora Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep Dealership, 931 S. Lone Hill Ave.
