CORPUS CHRISTI - Police are searching for a man who ran from officers checking out a stolen GMC Yukon found at Swatner Park along Ocean Drive this morning.
OnStar contacted police about the vehicle reported stolen in Alice. A man in the SUV immediately took of running and jumped into Corpus Christi Bay.
At some point he pulled out a knife, took off his shirt and took off running into a nearby neighborhood.
He's described as a 25-year-old Hispanic male, 5'7" tall, 180 lbs, brown hair, and brown eyes.
CCISD locked down nearby schools during the search earlier this morning. Officers have several blocks along Ocean Drive between Airline Road and Ennis Joslin so K9 units can search the area.
If you see a suspicious man in the area, call 911.
A 23-year-old woman who was also in the vehicle is under arrest.
