Police have arrested a Brampton man on the run after he allegedly led police on a chase in Cambridge last week.

Around 11:30 a.m. on Friday (April 22), the Waterloo Regional Police Service says officers saw a Brampton man wanted on outstanding warrants driving in the area of Ballantyne Ave. and East St. in Cambridge.

Police say the man was wanted on over half a dozen charges including criminal harassment, five counts of fail to comply with a release order, assault, forcible entry, and mischief under $5,000.

But police say the driver took off when officers tried to pull him over, fleeing the scene in a vehicle. Officers managed to locate the suspect shortly after the getaway and the driver was arrested without incident, police said.

Waterloo Regional Police say a 30-year-old male from Brampton has been charged with:

  • Criminal harassment
  • Two counts of Fail to comply with release order
  • Flight from police

Police did not release the name of the accused, who was held in police custody for a bail hearing. None of the allegations have been proven in court.
