SANTA ANA ( —  Police in Santa Ana have launched a full-scale search for an assault suspect.

Officials said the suspect attempted to assault a police officer.

Sky2’s Stu Mundel said police were trailing the suspect earlier and that he attempted to ram his vehicle into them.

Authorities said after the man attempted to ram the police car he got out of his vehicle and fled into the neighborhood of 1st and Gunther.

“They are fairly sure the suspect is hunkered down somewhere in this neighborhood,” Mundel reported.

No evacuations have been ordered. There are, however, “a number of officers on the ground,” Mundel said.
