Los Angeles police responded to the call of a hot prowler in the 7700 block of Graystone Drive and set up a perimeter near Roscoe and Valley Circle boulevards.
The suspect led officers on a foot chase over steep and rugged terrain, at one point taking his shirt off as he ran through shrubs.
A K-9 eventually caught up to the suspect, who would not give up his attempt to escape.
