A suspect is on the loose after fleeing from officers overnight in Mesa.

According to Mesa Police Department, officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop near Gilbert Road and the US-60. The car sped off and officers chased the vehicle before it crashed into a median.

Police say a suspect ran away from the vehicle after the crash and into the Windemere Apartments in the area.

Air units reportedly saw the suspect, but could not get a good enough look to provide a description.

DPS assisted officers in the incident and confirm that officers were unable to make contact with the individual.
