REDDING, Calif. -

A wanted man was taken to the hospital Friday after he led Redding police officers on a chase.

Police officers attempted to stop a man on a bicycle around 2:30 p.m. after they responded to a report that a suspicious person was possibly armed with a knife near the intersection of Old Alturas Road and Victor Avenue.

When officers contacted the man he ran from them but was quickly captured.

After the suspect was detained it was determined the man had a warrant for his arrest but before officers could interview him further he asked for medical attention.

An ambulance was summoned and the man was taken to the hospital.
