Authorities say a man suspected of chasing a woman with a gun and knife suffered multiple injuries when he jumped from a third-story apartment window to elude police in Moorhead.

Officers talked to the woman about 10 p.m. Wednesday and found her unharmed. She directed officers to the apartment building where the man had possibly returned.

When police made contact with him, the suspect jumped to the ground 25 feet below and ran from the scene. Officers used a tracking dog and found him hiding in a residential porch where he was arrested. The 47-year-old is being treated for his injuries suffered during the jump.

Criminal charges are pending. Officials say he also has a felony probation violation warrant.
