A Mansfield man was arrested Wednesday after crashing a stolen pick-up truck in a creek bed and running from police.

Mansfield Police Officer Ryan Anschutz says the incident occurred around 12 p.m. when he received a report that a black Chevy S- 10 had been stolen from the Volunteers of America Thrift Store parking lot at 1280 Park Ave. West.

"About half-hour later, we had caller report that they saw the vehicle driving down Park Ave. West near Brookwood Way and then northbound on Home Road," Anschutz said.

"We caught up with the vehicle and the suspect took off westbound down Nussbaum Parkway. He got to the dead end and went airborne about 30 feet and landed in the creek bed," Anschutz said.

The suspect fled the vehicle and ran into the woods down the intersection of North Sunset and August Drive. Officer Anschutz says the suspect was found 30 minutes later on the west side of North Sunset in a wooded area laying under some brush. He was taken into custody without incident.
