Napa Police are seeking a 30-year-old transient wanted on a warrant out of Georgia who fled Thursday in a foot chase in downtown Napa.
Police are looking for Sean Patrick McKnight, who fled while in the process of being arrested on the outstanding warrant at about 2:45 p.m. in the vicinity of the Napa County Library, 580 Coombs St., Napa.
He is also wanted for resisting arrest.
The incident started when an officer saw McKnight
standing near his bicycle in the 500 block of Coombs Street near Division Street.
The officer knew McKnight had an arrest warrant out of Georgia. When the
officer pulled alongside McKnight and began to exit his car, McKnight jumped on
his bicycle and fled.
The officer got back into his car and pursued McKnight a
short distance, at which time McKnight got off his bicycle and began to run in
the 500 block of Brown Street.
He then ran into a yard and jumped over a fence, at
which time the officer lost McKnight.
A perimeter was set in the area by responding officers and a search for McKnight began. Officers searched the area, but did not find McKnight.
Anyone with information on
the whereabouts of McKnight should contact the Napa Police Department at
707-257-9223 or or Tip411.
McKnight is a white male
adult with short brown hair and a short beard. He was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt and light blue jeans.
