Press Release #100614(03)-Suspect Attempting to Flee Police Injured, Hospitalized
A 27-year-old San Angelo man who broke through a bathroom window trying to escape apprehension from police remains hospitalized at Shannon Medical Center in stable condition.
Police initially responded to a residence in the 500 block of Baker Street for a Civil Disturbance just before 8:00 a.m. today. Once on scene, San Angelo Police assisted a City Marshal with unwanted subjects who were on the property.
Officers made contact with a 33-year-old female unwanted subject. She was identified and taken into custody by the Marshal and later transported to Municipal Court to settle eight (08) outstanding City Warrants.
Upon entering the residence, the Marshal reportedly located the male suspect and attempted to identify him. During the contact, the man repeatedly pushed his back against a bathroom window in an attempt to break the glass to escape. Officers ordered the man to stop but the man refused to comply, broke through the window, fell to the ground and ran north through a field.
Officers and the Marshal pursued the man and located him lying in cactus and bleeding from severe lacerations he sustained when he broke through the window.
Officers and the Marshal provided first aid to the man until Medics arrived and transported him to Shannon Medical Center.
During a search of the man's clothing for identification, officers located a small amount of Marijuana and two separate bags of a substance that later field-tested positive for approximately 2g of Methamphetamine.
Charges are pending following the man's release from medical care. This is an ongoing investigation and no other information is available at this time.
