LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock man has been arrested and faces charges of aggravated assault, evading arrest, criminal trespass and resisting arrest after an assault and a brief police chase.

According to the police report, 22-year-old Miguel Mendoza was involved in a fight with another male. A witness told police Mendoza hit the man in the head with a beer bottle, then turned his attention to the driver of a vehicle who pulled over when he saw there was a fight.

The police report says Mendoza pulled out a knife and made threats to the three people in the vehicle. The vehicle drove away and Mendoza threw the knife at the vehicle, then left on a bicycle.

The man hit in the head with a beer bottle was not found. 

Officers found Mendoza riding a bicycle, but he refused to comply with officer's commands to stop. After a brief chase, a K9 unit found Mendoza hiding in a back yard in the 2100 block of 3rd Street.

Mendoza was taken into custody, but he continued to resist while being placed in the patrol vehicle. The paddy wagon took Mendoza to the Lubbock County Detention Center.

He is expected to be charged with three counts of aggravated assault, evading arrest, criminal trespass and resisting arrest. No bond has been set at this time.
