The man was seen Monday afternoon at approximately 4 p.m. in the M-20/Oceana Drive area and fled in a vehicle, Mast said Tuesday morning. He was then spotted in the Woodrow Road/112th Avenue area and fled on foot. The Lake County K-9 Unit was called in to track the suspect, but the recent rainfall has made tracking difficult, Mast said. Police continue their pursuit of the suspect, who is described as a white male possibly in his 20s, with a skinny build with short blond hair wearing a blue shirt and jeans.
