DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A handcuffed suspect remained on the loose after he escaped arresting officers who interrupted an attempted burglary Saturday in Northeast Dallas, a spokesman said.

Dallas Police were called to 8401 Skillman St. at 1:55 p.m. after reports of a man brandishing a hatchet inside the complex.

Department spokesman Kevin Janse said officers stopped a burglary of a unit upon their arrival. They detained the suspect and called the owner, who was asked to return home and confirm whether the incident was a burglary.

While waiting for the resident to get back to his apartment, Janse said the suspect fled the scene while handcuffed. Officers called a K-9 unit, but the dog failed to find the man.

“Officers know who he is and an escape warrant will be issued for him,” Janse said.

He remained at large Saturday evening.
