Gobinda Chinweefat, 26, was detained by police when they responded to reports of a break-in at a house in Didsbury, Manchester, at about 11.35pm on Friday.

Shortly afterwards Chinweefat complained of chest pains and an ambulance was called.

But he jumped out the vehicle as it drove him to hospital and ran off through a tunnel in the Kingsway area.

Chinweefat, from the Burnage area of Manchester, was wearing a white T-shirt with writing on it, Adidas tracksuit bottoms with a blue motif on the right hand pocket and trainers.

Detective Inspector Kevin Marriott said: "He is not to be approached by members of the public but if anyone sees him or knows of his whereabouts, please contact Greater Manchester Police on 101 immediately."

Anyone who wishes to give information anonymously can do so by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
