RENO, NV - A fugitive bangs on a home yelling for help early Wednesday but instead of letting him in, the homeowners call 911 prompting the man to run for greener pastures.

The Washoe County Sheriff's Office received an emergency call from a resident in the 1300 block of Del Monte Lane at approximately 3:50 a.m., Wednesday.

The residents reported that a suspicious male, later identified as 30-year-old Gregory Evans, was at their front door yelling that he had been attacked and demanded entry into the home.

According to deputies the home owners did not open their door, instead they called 911. Realizing he was not going to be let into the home Evans wandered off towards the back of the house. This initiated the response from the Sheriff's Office.

Upon arrival deputies established a perimeter around the general area of the neighborhood which included Anderson Park.

Deputies spotted Evans and shouted instructions but instead of listening, he began running through a pasture towards Anderson Park. Deputies gave chase and eventually captured Evans who attempted to hide near a horse barn.

Evans was arrested for Trespassing, Obstructing a Peace Officer and Possession of Methamphetamine. He was also found to have Fugitive from Justice Felony warrants out of Utah for Dealing in Materials Harmful to a Minor and Violation of Protective Order.

His bail has been set at $11,835.

The Sheriff's Office urges the public to remain vigilant and always report suspicious activities, circumstances, persons and vehicles. By reporting criminal or suspicious situations, law enforcement is able to respond and properly handle these reports without the public inadvertently endangering themselves.
