ABILENE, Texas -

A manhunt led to a man's arrest Friday afternoon in the 3800 block of Clinton Street, just north of I-20 and near Old Anson Road, in north Abilene. 

Around 2 p.m. law enforcement received a suspicious person call from a resident along Huckleberry Street.

Police set up a three-block perimeter as they sought the man.  He ditched a mini-bike he was riding in order to flee into the neighborhood. 

After a 45 minute search police arrested 33-year-old Andrew Hicks.  

He was arrested on municipal warrants and is now also facing charges of evading detention.
