Police are searching for a man who fled after a vehicle pursuit early Wednesday morning.

The man fled from the patrol vehicle during a routine traffic stop at Eastern Avenue and Ione Road just before 2 a.m. He then drove off the roadway, through the desert area and into a front yard where he hit a parked vehicle in the 2900 block of Galena Drive in Henderson.

The driver, described as a black male between 16 and 20 years old and about 6'2", then fled on foot.

A perimeter was set up to search for the suspect, who was not located during the initial search.
