Police said they are looking for a man in his late teens or early 20s wearing a black beanie. They said he's known to police because of an ongoing drug investigation. They caught up with him at Motel 6 on Gateway, and that’s when the chase began.

The suspect took Coburg Road into the Gilham area. Police said he left his vehicle and ran off in the 2300 block of Benson Lane near the school.
